About Movement Lessons
About Sylvia & NeuroHorizons®
There is a passionate place in my heart for Children with Special Needs. I work daily with these children and their families, supporting their advances through diverse challenges. I have been honored to assist many hundreds of clients internationally since 1994, and now emphasize movement lesson intensives (my Focused 4/12® approach) as well as my Fundamentals seminars for parents.
I was trained by Anat Baniel and worked with her for many years as a Trainer and Practitioner at the Anat Baniel Method Center in California. In 2012 I saw an unmet need, and originated my highly focused and personalized NeuroHorizons® Parent Seminars and Professional Continuing Education programs, since attended by hundreds of parents, caregivers, and professionals around the world. My mission is to empower you to empower these great kids.
And now, with my wonderful colleague Kerstin Baldischwieler, we have created a unique, highly personalized, focused, and dynamic NeuroHorizonsEurope training program for parents, caregivers, and professionals supporting Children With Special Needs. We are on a mission to expand the number of skilled movement practitioners who are successfully supporting these great kids!
Sylvia with her colleague Kerstin Baldischwieler authored The NeuroHorizons Primer — the essential "big-picture" handbook for movement practitioners, parents, and caregivers seeking to elevate their service to Children With Special Needs.
In this lucid overview of the science, tools, attitudes, and artistry underlying their embodied approach to movement education, Sylvia and Kerstin set the stage for you to empower yourself to empower these great kids.
The Fundamentals of Experiential Movement®
Personal and personalized learning
for parents and caregivers:
The Fundamentals seminar series is the only small-group, entirely in-person, and fully individualized experiential learning program of its kind in North America. Master Practitioner and Teacher Sylvia Leiner Shordike has distilled her 25+ years of professional experience serving children, offering parents and caregivers new skills and techniques that bring more vitality into their own lives, while also learning how to more effectively support the Child With Special Needs. Through these seminars you learn to empower yourself to empower the child.
Please Note: The Fundamentals seminars are designed and presented for your personal learning goals. These seminars do not offer or grant you any academic credit or credential, or opportunity for professional / governmental licensure. Nor will your completion of these experiential seminars by itself lead to employment or income in any job or occupation.
