Introductory course NDS online

The online Introductory course NDS Learning through Movement© serves as a comprehensive alternative to the face-to-face course, offering a strong theoretical foundation upon which the subsequent face-to-face Continuation course NDS can build. The Introductory course includes 12 video lectures and downloadable scripts in PDF format, which are specifically adapted for online teaching. In addition, an online meeting will be available, providing participants with the opportunity to ask questions and clarify doubts about the NDS method. As with the face-to-face course, the online course has limited capacity. Access to the course will be granted for a full calendar month, allowing participants to take the Introductory course from the comfort of their homes.

The Introductory course aims to provide participants with a fundamental understanding of Neuro-Developmental Stimulation theory, its concepts, and the proper recognition of disorders associated with the persistence of primary reflexes or poor sensory integration. Basic tests for persistent primary reflexes will also be introduced during the course.

This course is highly recommended for educators, occupational therapists, speech therapists, physiotherapists, and parents seeking to expand their knowledge and skills in this area.

Introductory course content

The course content covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to Neuro-Developmental Stimulation (NDS) and its basic principles

  • The interconnectivity between primary reflexes, sensory integration, psychomotor development, and their impact on learning, behavior, and concentration

  • Risk factors for the persistence of primary reflexes

  • The importance of movement in the first year of life, supporting psychomotor development, and preventing the persistence of primary reflexes

  • The effects of persistent primary reflexes on learning and behavior

  • Sensory-Sensitive Integration and its definition

  • Hypersensitivity and hyposensitivity to sensory perceptions

  • Identifying the roots of difficulties through the recognition of persistent primary reflexes from a child's behavior and movement

The course requires a time allowance of 20 hours.

Lecturer: PhDr. Marja Volemanová, PhD.

The participation fee is 4800 CZK/ 210 Euro (including VAT)
