“My enthusiasm for my work in the special education classroom has been renewed. I now have an awareness of noticing that will get stronger over time. I have some foundational pieces that Cece calls Building Blocks that will get me to the heart of a child’s problem much more quickly.”

“This course is very helpful in giving hands-on exercises to activate the learning process. Teachers are given tools to help optimal learning occur. I’ve learned to be more aware of my own body. I have come to realize the amazing connection between my body and my mind. This course provided a structure for me to achieve greater clarity and experience many insights––things came together. The attention to detail that makes movement-based learning so much more comprehendible will greatly improve the effectiveness of the work I am doing.”

“Cece’s ability to share the way she notices the child’s behavior, demeanor, ability to pay attention to the game being played or the task being done, is magical. She is able to express what she sees so that you can then replicate the assessment in your own sessions with a child. It’s magical.”

“This course is a learning by doing experience. The atmosphere was open and safe––conducive to learning. Movement-based learning uses movement of the body to effect changes in the brain. It is a tool that once learned, is easy to integrate into your work as a Physical Therapist (PT) as well as your home life. It is a great adjunct to all other tools that we use as a PT.”
