This interactive and media enhanced 1-day program introduces the Infinity Walk and its usefulness as a progressively more challenging and integrative multi-tasking skill builder. Treatment plans that include Infinity Walk can playfully accomplish the simultaneous practice of many sensorimotor, cognitive and psychosocial skills in an integrated context of normally occurring movement and social interaction. Participants will develop a theoretical and practical understanding of the Infinity Walk method and its many progressive adaptations, and gain sufficient practice and experience to immediately begin to apply the method within their professional area of expertise.
The primary focus of the program will be on the use of the method with pre-schoolers and school-age youth, but the day's learnings can be applied to all ages or can be further adapted for many special need uses, including with use of assisted or motorized ambulation, therapeutic horses, and therapeutic pools. Infinity Walk intervention strategies will be discussed for one-on-one, paired, small group and school environments. In addition, the successful use of Infinity Walk as a sensory-integrative home practice method with high-compliance is explained and taught.
Dr. Sunbeck, the creator of Infinity Walk, will also pass on special applications of the method for integration of sensory, neuromusculoskeletal, motor, attention, expressive language, self-concept, and interpersonal skills that have been shared with her by sensory integration professionals from various health and educational fields over its 15+ years of use . At the end of this program all participants will receive an introductory Infinity Walk PowerPoint presentation on CD disk that they may take back to their place of employment for use in a staff presentation
