NeuroHorizons: A Child's Neural Map is Not the Territory

NeuroHorizonsEurope: Empower Yourself to Empower a Special Needs Child

LEARN WITH THE MASTERS

In-Person & Personalized Instruction
with Sylvia & Kerstin

We are passionate about training new practitioners and sharing with you our 50+ (combined) years of professional experience serving children and their families across Europe and the Americas.


Over time we have observed the attitudes and approaches that consistently lead to optimal outcomes for the kids. We want you to learn those as well, and we have crafted the focused, integrated program that will get you there.

Our commitment
over 10 class segments (plus optional Professional Supervision Intensives) is that you grow your embodied awareness, skill, and confidence — with yourself and with the children. We look forward to exploring this creative learning process with you!

“Sylvia and Kerstin's joy and generosity in sharing their expertise and passion seems infinite. I am still intoxicated from our last professional supervision group. The intense learning really brought me back to myself, to my humanity, and to my pleasure as a practitioner working with the kids. Outstanding."
