The Preconception, Prenatal and Postnatal time lay the foundation of health for a person’s entire life. If you are seeing any of the following in practice, then we need to see YOU in March!

  •  Increased rise in prenatal stressors, such as pre-eclampsia and preterm births
  •  Increased rise in children with immune challenges
  •  More children needing special services due to developmental challenges
  •  More parents confused about what a tongue tie is and what to do about it

Being up-to-date and in-the-know on these latest health and developmental challenges is the key to building confidence and certainty.

If you are working with the preconception, prenatal or pediatric populations and want to be the best at what you do, you don’t want to miss the Academy of Neurodevelopmental Practices seminar March 8-9th in Long Island.


THREE trailblazers are coming together for ONE purpose!

  • Dr. Monika Buerger
  • Dr. Elizabeth Mumper
  • Dr. Scott Siegel

This impactful seminar will cover modern-day chemical, physical and emotional stressors and their effects on the developing nervous system and WHY this is considered to be the Neurobiology of Disease.

The course will guide you in the right direction so you can Turn the Tide on health and wellbeing for generations to come!

The First 1,000 Days!
From preconception to prenatal to preterm to postnatal to polyvagal, we will dive into WHAT you can do to support the developing nervous system. We will take a close look at how parental stressors and nutritional status are passed down via intergenerational mechanisms and can affect epigenetic loads and genetic expression.

We will dig into Movement, Milestones, and the Mind a take a close look at neuro-motor patterns during the first years of life and how they affect “brain building”. You will learn how to look at proper motor movement patterns as well as compensatory patterns and what they might indicate. The connection between how early neuromotor patterns and postural instability later in life are associated with several mental and metabolic conditions will also be discussed, as will proper intervention strategies.

The neurological connection between fascial restrictions from tethered oral tissues and vertebral subluxations will also be presented. You will learn to screen for tethered oral restrictions and learn their potential long-term consequences- beyond breastfeeding and speech. A dive into obstructed airway conditions will also be presented.

From PANS/PANDAS, Autoimmune Encephalopathy, to COVID, you will learn key neuroimmune supportive measures to help minimize the total load and maximize neurodevelopment during the early years.

She currently has a private family practice in Ammon, Idaho that is dedicated to serving those with neurodevelopmental challenges, neurodegenerative disorders and chronic health issues. She has been lecturing nationally and internationally for over 25 years. She is the pioneer in the chiropractic profession when it comes to working with children that have Neurosensory and Neurodevelopmental Disorders and brought this work to the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) where she lectured for near a decade. She is a contributing author to the textbook Pediatric Chiropractic, Volumes I, II and III with chapters on Foundations of Neurodevelopment, Sensory Processing Disorder, and Pediatric History and Physical Exam. She writes regularly for various chiropractic magazines and journals about neurologically based chiropractic care. Dr. Buerger has always been ahead of the times, leading the way on health information and bringing the research from multiple disciplines to the chiropractic world in a subluxation based manner. She is the founder of the Academy of Neurodevelopmental Practices and has also collaborated with Dr. Heidi Haavik with Haavik-Buerger Seminars. Her “developingMINDS” certification program in Childhood and Adolescent Neurodevelopment is unparalleled. In this incredible program, she mentors practitioners from around the globe and has brought 30 years of her research, teaching, and clinical experience together to serve humanity at its highest level and help Turn the Tide for generations to come!
