Please come and join me in three workshops for parents of young children to have a closer look at '7 Archetypes stages in the first year of a child's life'

The foundations for healthy lifelong learning are being built with the help of infant reflexes and automatic sensory motor responses.

The concept of infant reflexes, their maturation, integration and relevance for human life will be introduced and hopefully supported with observations from your own life experiences. Be prepared to try out the 7 movement stages together.

An active course package which can inspire your own interaction with your young child and provide you with some insights into how to help your child come into his/her body.

The package consists of an introductory lecture and three workshops. The first workshop is geared towards pregnant mothers and young parents and will take you back to the beginnings of life, introduce the role and function of different reflex patterns and highlight particular milestones an infant has to master on his/her own efforts.

The second workshop will take a closer look at the child in kindergarten and observable sensory-motor developments at the age of 3-4 years. Different playful activities will be introduced, which can be used to support movement, balance, speech and social skills. Be prepared to move!

The third workshop will address the concerns about school readiness and different observations that might be indicators of developmental delays, i.e. immature reflex integration. The seven archetypes are still being used as a frame of reference. What can be done to mature reflex patterns at a later stage and ease the transition into school? Be prepared to share your own experiences if you want.
