    BronwenScott_Vision and Development

    Maybe not so much the OTs in our world or neurodevelopment, but certainly as PTs we have prioritised motor function over sensory function when we think about how the body works. The more we learn about the importance of the sensory pathways in the sensory-motor loop, the better we get at understanding how, as therapists who can only work from the outside in, we can impact the whole system when we pay attention to the incoming information, and more importantly the processing and interpretation of that incoming information. And of all the senses, vision could arguably be the most important for driving, modulating and impacting neuromotor development, which is why I am so excited to be brining you this interview today with Bronwen Scott, talking about all things vision and development. Jam packed full of useful insights, practical applications adn clinical pearls, you’re going to love this conversation - enjoy!

    Julie Perfect: Standing and walking across the lifespan

    Julie Perfect: Standing and walking across the lifespan

    There’s nothing I love more than amplifying the voices of passionate clinicians who have the kind of wisdom and insights that can only be found through years of real world real life experiences mixed in with an endlessly curious mind and an irrepressible excitement for whats possible. That’s exactly what Julie Perfect brings to this interview. Years and years of learning, doing, teaching and learning some more about standing and gait development makes for fascinating conversation about this topic that holds so much influence over the work we all do. So much more than a marker of ability, standing and walking delivers a promise of participation and independence across the life span IF we get it right - and in this interview, Julie shares some of her hard earned wisdoms about exactly how to do just that. We start off - as most good stories do - at the point where it all began…

    Kids Bowels and Bladders for PTs and OTs

    Kids Bowels and Bladders for PTs and OTs

    It is possible to have been a therapists for 30+ years, worked with hundreds, if not thousands of kids and have completely missed a glaring piece of the puzzle that was hidden in plane sight. That’s how I felt dipping into Dawn Sandalcidis’ world of children's bowel and bladder issues. Guilty that I hadn’t paid enough attention to the conversation with parents about their kids constipation, fascinated about how much their was to know about this most basic human function and excited about what we could do as therapists to make significant impacts in the lives and well-being of the kids who cross out paths if we just pay attention and ask the right questions.


    Dawn Sandalcidi is know as a trail blazer in this areas of kids bowel and bladder and she is that and so much more. I think we squeezed more into this interview than any other interview I’ve done. More questions, more diagnoses, more practical tips , insights and inspiration - Dawn seems to make the impossibly complex simple and doable. I know you are going to gain so much from listening to this interview!


    Enjoy!

    Brigid Driscoll: Aligning physical therapy and orthotics in pediatrics

    Brigid Driscoll: Aligning physical therapy and orthotics in pediatrics

    This interview is packed with practical tips, brilliant insights and golden nuggets to take away. We get into the weeds of idiopathic toe-walking, CP and and orthotic devices in but just as importantly, we explore the realities of bringing clinical work and evidence based practice into alignment (excuse the pun).


    Because this interview has such a practical focus, I do need to state that all advice is in this and all wiredOn interviews is general information for our individual growth and learning and is not meant as treatment or clinical advice, even when we are discussing specific clinical cases.


    Therapy in pediatric neurodisabilty is both an art and a science and Brigid Driscoll brings these together so eloquently in this wiredOn interview. I know you are going to get so much value out of this interview - enjoy!

    Anat Baniel Method®NeuroMovement® Making Sense Out of the Nonsense

    Anat Baniel Method®NeuroMovement® Making Sense Out of the Nonsense

    This is part 2 of Anat Baniel’s 2 part interview. In part one we dived into understanding the 9 essentials and contrasting them with some of our more contemporary approaches in physical and occupational therapy. In part two we get into some hot topics and Anat answers questions sent in by curious wired on listeners. Anat is in equal measure passionate, emphatic and open-minded. I loved her thoughtful responses to challenging questions, but most of all I loved just being exposed to the way she thinks about the world, and the work that we do - the science, the art, and the possibilities. enjoy!

    Anat Baniel Method®NeuroMovement® Differentiating Around the Edges

    Anat Baniel Method®NeuroMovement® Differentiating Around the Edges

    I hold curiosity and an open mind as two of my most precious values and so I love nothing more than to step off the straight and narrow in search of treasures and possibilities.I am struck however by how much synergy there is in what thought leaders and master clinicians that I’ve interviewed are saying - and how Anat has packaged these up in her 9 essentials. Such seemingly opposing philosophies of approach all in agreement despite their many differences - Kim Barthel talking about emotion, the brain-body connection, and the importance of verbalizing behavior to bring awareness and connection, Brian Hoare talking about the importance of extrinsic learning and learning to learn, Jean-Pierre talking about not treating into the child's limitations but accessing the brains capacity for change and Prof Rosenbaum recognizing the importance of accepting each child as perfectly whole and amazing no matter their current challenges. I'm excited by so much synergy and worried that egos get in the way of building on these connections, and concerned about how we start to tease out the hope from the hype. What a crazy, energizing and precarious place to be as therapists - we have important roles to play here because we are the ones who walk the longest and closest with the parents and their children - we have a responsibility to be open to new possibilities whilst being informed and cautious. How do we do that? With conversations open conversations for a start which is exactly what this interview is about. Anat and I had so much to say, that I’ve had to split it into two parts. This is part 1 as we seek to understand the concepts. In part two we really dig into the hot topics, hard questions and science - enjoy

wiredON Development

This is a very interesting and informative podcast. Dr. Marry Massery’s topic: Bridging Systems in Pediatric Physical Therapy is very thought-provoking, and it challenges us to delve deeper into underlying issues.
