Learning through Experience

Workshops for Parents and Professionals


Learning means making new connections between mental, emotional and physiological processes. The brain develops on the base of experience. The plasticity of the nervous system allows us to learn throughout life and make connections within ourselves and with others and the environment: within the realm of the self, gravity and space. This also includes the context, the family, society, schools and institutions, as well as the group of educators and therapists caring for a person/ child with a disability. These connections create the foundation of all learning processes. The workshops are specifically tailored to share our approach with parents and professionals.

A big part of a workshop is experiential, that means that the participants experience in their own bodies movement and touch as the foundation of learning. We also discuss key concepts and share short videos, which demonstrate the direct link between one’s own experience and the application in individual session.
