NeuroNet's suite of programs is designed to help children in PreK-Grade 5 reach developmental milestones in hearing, motor skills, and communication. NeuroNet programs also address early reading, math, and handwriting skills.
The Tools for Learning Nanodegree includes 5 distinct NeuroNet software programs to match the needs of your caseload.
Early Learning, PreK, Program 0, Program 1, and Program 2
One-year therapist Software License
30 student iPad assessment accounts
Following this online course you will be able to:
Use the NeuroNet Software Programs to develop neural networks linking hearing, balance, foot movement, hand movement, listening and talking.
Adapt NeuroNet exercises to meet the individual needs of PreK-Grade 5 students needing academic support.
Explain the neuroscience research behind using gross motor skills and rhythm to improve fluency in reading, math, and handwriting.
1. The participant will list the basic developmental auditory-motor milestones for children birth to 4 and demonstrate games for developing these skills.
2. The participant will demonstrate basic NeuroNet movement exercises addressing vestibular information processing (rhythm, movement and timing) for children ages 3-5.
3. The participant will demonstrate basic Listen, Talk and Write exercises integrating rhythmic speech, air writing, and copying and drawing of geometric forms for children 3-5. The participant will explain the importance of integrating rhythmic hand movement and rhythmic speech.
4. The participant will explain how the neuroscience research can help us understand and improve a patient’s attention by increasing neural synchrony for balance, listening, speaking and rhythmic movement.
5. The participant will demonstrate auditory motor word memory exercises and explain how these exercises systematically move clients into measurable levels of auditory-motor speech automaticity for 2-syllable and then 3-syllable words.
About the Workshop Presenter
Nancy W. Rowe created the NeuroNet Programs to help struggling learners develop learning readiness through vestibular and auditory therapy procedures that develop temporal processing. Ms. Rowe has an undergraduate degree in Speech Education from New York University, and a graduate degree in Speech and Hearing Science from Washington University, St. Louis. She has presented the NeuroNet Therapy Program at conferences and workshops in the US, Europe, and Central and South America.
Ms. Rowe is a member of the American Academy of Audiology and the American Speech and Hearing Association. She currently maintains a private practice in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
