New Visions workshops, for parents and professionals,
are based upon the knowledge that learning occurs easily
and fully when principles of accelerated learning are
incorporated into the program. Optimal learning is a
major goal and focus for each workshop. Specific programs
may incorporate the use of music, Hemi-SyncÆ,
guided imagery, movement activities, and extensive
audiovisual materials. A comprehensive workshop manual is
provided for each participant.
Workshops are taught by Suzanne Evans Morris,
Ph.D., a speech-language pathologist who is
nationally and internationally known for her work in
identifying and treating children with feeding and
pre-speech disorders. She is assisted by a "Parent Partner" who provides clear parent experiences and perspectives throughout the course.
Service providers are faced with the challenges of
managed care and greater accountability to third party
payers. Therapists, educators, and medical professionals
working with children must identify the client's key
issues rapidly, and organize and implement treatment
strategies that enable the fastest change possible.These
professionals require continuing education workshops that
meet their learning needs. Most programs fail to do
this.They focus on facts and techniques -- offering
ideas, but not the strategies for working and creating
with these ideas. Many of these workshops do not honor
the unique learning styles of participants.
Parents rarely have the opportunity to attend a small group workshop that focuses specifically on their individual needs and interests in helping their child learn feeding and mealtime skills. Most workshops provide therapy ideas that are more suitable to the therapy setting than to the home.
New Visions workshops are different! They incorporate
the most recent approaches and technology for
accelerating your learning -- and that of your clients.
They emphasize strategies for accessing and organizing
information so that logical and intuitive approaches are
seamlessly blended. New Visions workshops are smaller (up
to 10 participants), enabling extensive group interaction
and personal dialogue with Suzanne Morris.
Course content is presented in a multimedia,
experiential format. Use of audiovisual materials, small
group discussion, problem-solving sessions,and accelerated learning technology assist each
participant in enhancing skills used in assessing and
treating children with oral-feeding problems.
A physical environment supportive of relaxed optimal
learning has been selected. Workshops are held at the New
Visions House, located in a lovely rural setting -- the
serene atmosphere of the Blue Ridge Mountain foothills 30
miles southwest of Charlottesville, Virginia.
Opportunities for swimming, boating, and hiking are
available during breaks.
The New Visions workshops can help you make the
changes that will lead toward more accurate diagnosis and
more efficient therapy and home programs.
We hope to welcome you to New Visions.
