    Sarah Clayton - Body Symmetry Specialist

    Sarah Clayton - Body Symmetry Specialist

    Passionate, straight-talking and someone who not only teaches this stuff - but lives it.


    We're talking 24-hour-postural management, body symmetry and nighttime positioning with Sarah Clayton from Simple Stuff Works.


    Sarah is passionate about posture! And her passion is highly contagious. She has worked with families of children living with complex disability since the late 1990’s and her life’s mission is to enable parents and practitioners to help put an end to avoidable complications such as hip dislocations and scoliosis. On top of that, she's grown up in a family where 24-hour-postural management is in the blood (with her dad being the brain behind the Goldsmith Indices used to measure body symmetry) and she's been in the thick of it since 2007 when her daughter Abigail was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour at aged 6. 


    And so now in 2019, Abi is doing well at a mainstream college with additional support and Sarah has three other children, works full time as a "therapeutic night time positioning & measurement of body symmetry" specialist for Simple Stuff Works and can regularly be found wearing her jumper inside out.


    And also in 2019 I am excited to be able to interview Sarah and dig into all things related to making postural management work in the real world!


    If you're equally passtionate about body posture or you're struggling to make 24-hour-postural management work with equipement and families, this podcast is a must listen

    Colleen Peyton: Prechtl General Movement Assessment for Occupational & Physical Therapist

    Colleen Peyton: Prechtl General Movement Assessment for Occupational & Physical Therapist

    A fundamental skill for therapists working in neuromotor development is the ability to analyze movement. The GMA (General Movement Assessment) takes it to a whole new level and Colleen Peyton has a wealth of knowledge about just how to do this. As a licensed GMA instructor, Colleen combines her many years of clinical work as a physical therapist with her academic research on human movement and development to give us practical and applicable insight into this amazing tool that is changing the outcomes of children at risk for cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities. No matter if you're familiar with the GMA or it's new to you, you'll find something in this interview that will give you an A-ha moment - and when you do - join in the online conversation by sharing it with a #wiredonColleen so we can find you and appreciate your insights too!

    Dr Marry Massery: Bridging systems in pediatric physical therapy

    Dr Marry Massery: Bridging systems in pediatric physical therapy

    We talk about multi-disciplinary and we talk about being wholistic therapists that see the whole child, but Dr Mary Massery lives and breathes these concepts (excuse the pun). Mary Massery is probably most well know for her soda pop can theory of postural stability and in our interview I was expecting to focus on breathing and core - and we did a lot of that - but thats just a starting point. Mary has a formidable and impressive reputation as a thought leader in physical therapy and it is well deserved. She is an international key note speaker, an academic and a practicing clinician who fully intends to keep practicing after she turns 100, which is a good thing for the rest of us and all the clients she works with!


    I was hugely excited to interview Mary fo a wired on Podcast and I was not disappointed. You won’t be either - you are going to love this interview - enjoy

    Susan Blum: TMR Tots & Teens - A Foundational Toolbox For Pediatric Physical Therapists

    Susan Blum: TMR Tots & Teens - A Foundational Toolbox For Pediatric Physical Therapists

    I’ve been interviewing amazing clinicians for well over a year now, and therapists often reach out to me and make suggestions about who they think is worthy of an interview. Susan Blum has been recommended more than most, and if you haven’t at least heard her name mentioned alongside TMR tots & teens, I’m thinking you’re probably a wee bit isolated from the general chatter of pediatric physical therapists online. The growing number of therapists that have been raving about and recommending her approach is a tiny window of insight into the power and exciting potential behind this systematic approach to treating a wide range of children (and adults) with difficulties ranging from delayed milestones to cerebral palsy and everything in between and I was not disappointed. Links to all the good stuff we talked about can be found at www.wiredondevelopment.com

    Oren Steinberg: Empowering Parents with Home Programs - Sensory Treat

    Oren Steinberg: Empowering Parents with Home Programs - Sensory Treat

    Oren Steinberg is the founder and chairperson of Sensory Treat, a revolutionary programme that supports therapists and parents to work together in creating home exercise programmes for children with sensory processing difficulties. Oren comes from a background of tech, currently working for a healthcare and technology company on a mission to make clinical genetic sequencing more accessible to physicians and patients, but his super power is that he is a dad that has walked the walk - and has his own personal journey of being a parent of a child on the therapy treadmill and what it means to actually be successful as parent at implementing therapy with your own kids at home - and what we as therapists can do to help with that. I really enjoyed our chat - it gave me a lot of food for thought and I know you are going to get a lot out of it too - enjoy!
