Kinetic Bridging Workshop for Parents and Teacher

An introduction to Kinetic Bridging concepts and essential stability patterns. The goal of this workshop is to provide a more detailed understanding of how and why Kinetic Bridging works. The workshop will includes hands-on practice time for parents to learn the basics of finger stability to use with their children at home. Daily finger stabilization work is especially important for children who have significant developmental gaps.

Introduction: Method Overview, Developmental Stability Patterns, Applications

This module lays the foundation for understanding Kinetic Bridging and how to apply it to your clients and patients. In this session we cover the background of how Kinetic Bridging was developed by Cara Lindell, establish a common framework of terminology and the scientific basis for future modules, including the neuroscience, kinesiology and biomechanical principles. The first application, thumb stability, will be discussed, including demonstration and practice time.

Module 1: Basic Stability Patterns of the Upper & Lower Body

We learn the basic stability patterns throughout the body and how they develop from birth. We will learn how fundamental patterns enable higher level patterns. The essential stabilization patterns in the upper body and lower body, including the sequence of development will be covered. There will be ample demonstration and practice time to ensure you are capable of assessing and connecting the basic stability patterns throughout the body. Make sure to wear comfortable clothing. Two (2) Practical Review Sessions are included when registering for this module.

Module 2:  Basic Core Stabilization, Ipsi-lateral and Contra-lateral Patterns

The second module covers the stabilization patterns in and related to the core of the body. Elements of core stability develop shortly after birth, while others develop after arm and leg stability occurs. We will discuss, assess and practice the essential stabilization patterns including how they relate to basic fine and gross motor skills. Make sure to wear flexible clothing. Two (2) Practical Review Sessions are included when registering for this module.

Practical Review Sessions

Monthly two (2) hour hands-on Kinetic Bridging practice sessions where you can practice, ask questions, and get tips on the latest insights. Bring a person to practice with or buddy up. Each session will be dedicated to your real life questions in order to help you with the specific situations and populations you are working with.

Module 3: Advanced Topics in Developmental Sequence related Stabilization Patterns

In this advanced module we will discuss additional details in the sequence of developmental stabilization patterns and how they relate to sensory system function and motor skills. The specific relationships to visual systems, auditory processing, speech and ADL's will be included.

Module 4: Adults vs Children vs Infants

We will discuss in detail many of the differences between working with individuals of various ages. There are specific considerations to working with the different populations (infants, children and adults), especially with regard to the nervous system development and sensory system integration.
