Occupational therapist, Meghan Davidson-Palmer completes Brain and Sensory Foundations training


Meghan Davidson-Palmer MS OTR/L, an occupational therapist at the Midtown office of Child and Family Development, recently completed training in the Brain and Sensory Foundations from Move Play Thrive.  

The focus was on key childhood reflexes and how they affect development and functioning in a variety of skill areas, especially how they can impact performance when they are unintegrated or only partially integrated during development. The course teaches rhythmic and developmental movements that help to facilitate integration of these reflexes.

Meghan shares that this information is helpful with identification of unintegrated reflexes in the children and contributes to the development of a treatment plan that will best suit each client’s specific needs. One of her favorite parts about this course was that the instructor had several suggestions on modifying the exercises in order to create the best program for individual clients.

Our team of 12 occupational therapists is ready to help!
