Petra is a licensed physical therapist working with the Los Alamos Public Schools for 15 years. Her topic, “If Children Came With a Manual: The Importance of Sensory Motor Development in the Early Years,” was inspired by the increasing number of young children she works with showing sensorimotor and cognitive developmental delays. Because movement is integral to brain development and impacts education, she works to integrate primitive movement reflexes, increase sensory organization, enhance low muscle tone, speech delays and behavioral and academic difficulties, using a Dynamic Systems Theory Approach.
