Foundations of Neurodevelopment (FON)


Building a Milestone Practice

Prenatal stress is considered the foundation for the Neurobiology of Disease. This brilliant course looks at known factors to facilitate optimal neurodevelopment from preconception, to prenatal, to postnatal, to polyvagal!

In this course we start with key considerations to minimize preconception and prenatal stressors that affect epigenetic loads and genetic expression, including autonomic dysregulation and nutritional considerations. 

Then we move into taking a keen eye at neuromotor patterns and their impact on brain development in the first year of life. You will learn different ages and stages of tummy time and what they indicate. This will lead into “floor time is core” time and the significance of postural stability and how postural stability is associated with a number of labels such as: autism, ADHD, asthma, Tourette’s Syndrome, chronic pain, and more!

We will dive into what to look for at different stages of development and how to foster optimal movement patterns at 0-3 months, 4-6 months, 7-9 months, and 10-12 months. Then we move into addressing Primitive Reflexes in the first year of life and how to naturally integrate them.

This course wraps up with educating caregivers on the importance of maintaining “Milestone” wellness chiropractic checks for their infant. So often parents-to-be focus on the prenatal period and maintaining a care plan, but once the little one arrives, they do not follow through with infant care. We will discuss how to build a “Milestone Practice” and what parents need to know about “Brain Building”!

What People Are Saying:

I have found the grand round exercises incredibly valuable for helping me take the next steps in my practice. I have been able to successfully help more people implement lasting changes with helping them through doing gut rehab and adding really specific supplements here and there . People have really healed! And it is so rewarding. I don’t think I would have been able to do that if I had not done the Grand Rounds processes!
