- Sensory proportion
- Emotional Regulation

"Our higher cognitive processes are grounded in bodily experience, such that the sensory and motor neural circuits do not just feed into cognition, they are cognition."
Angela Elliot DC, CACCP
Pediatric and Family Chiropractor
"Since taking this training, I talk to the parents in my office on a daily basis about Developmental Movement and it has helped improve patient outcomes as well as position me to be the expert in my area. The information I have learned in this class alongside chiropractic adjustments has helped babies that were butt-scooting to crawl on all fours, help several of my patients with anxiety and ADD/ADHD feel better in their bodies, experience more calm and increase their ability to concentrate and focus on assigned tasks. The information you will learn in this class helps support the strong development of the nervous system and goes extremely well with a vitalistic chiropractic approach."
Dr. Tye Moe
Whole Family Chiropractic
"As a "chiropractor, I felt great at checking a child's spine and impacting the health of their nervous system. However, what I never realized is how vitally important developmental movement patterns (rolling, sitting, crawling, etc) are for the foundation of a child's brain. Also, I never had a confident sense of what INNATE DEVELOPMENT looks like. Stephanie's class gave me a deep understanding and appreciation for what normal development looks like, based on principles of the nervous system. This class is highly recommended for chiropractors who work with kiddos and want to build their clinical certainty and ability to communicate "why" we recommend what we do with parents."
Dr Keith Prussing
"Baby Bare, (the system taught in Developmental Movement for Chiropractors) is an approach to child development that emphasizes the importance of early movement in optimal development. Stephanie is an entertaining and thoughtful teacher, and her well-paced seminar will keep you engaged but not overwhelmed.This seminar will enhance your understanding of the neurological mechanisms of the vital developmental process, how to assess normal and abnormal, and what to do about it. You will come away with numerous clinical pearls that will be immediately applicable in your office on Monday morning."
