Judy is an amazing teacher/educator. She brings her countless years of clinical experience and really simplifies and consolidates anatomical, structural and functional principles. She is very clear in explaining the concepts of her courses. She has really augmented my paediatric clinical knowledge. I feel very comfortable in utilizing the skills and techniques in my practice. Such positive and insightful courses! Very grateful for her knowledge and ability to share and teach this valuable information.

Courses A/B1, B2/C, D + Advanced Clinical Courses
These courses will provide a framework for the assessment and treatment of the infant; newborn to 3 months and 3 months through the process of becoming increasingly more vertical to walking. The stabilization activity and dynamic movement patterns of the first 3 months are key to the baby attaining the best ideal movement moving forward through the stages of development from 3 months to walking.
The assessment will focus on movement fundamentals based in Development Kinesiology with a deepened knowledge of anatomy and function of the deep stabilizing system. The principles of midline, the fascial system and normalization of muscle, joint and fluid field will be explored with labs to orient the function of the newborn to optimal and comfortable stabilization patterns. All lab work will be oriented to the hands-on application of manual therapy skills with goal oriented decisions based in movement kinesiology for efficient treatment and successful outcomes.
These courses will provide a strong understanding of the organic, natural milestones of the baby necessary for assessment, treatment and re-evaluation.
These courses are focused on the assessment of non neurological patients and are designed for the paediatric practitioner who sees babies in clinic that may have a neck preference or torticollis, reflux, general discomfort, intolerance in tummy time, latching issues, poor quality in developmental milestones. The infant may have experienced a difficult birth.
These courses are also valuable for the practitioner with a primarily adult practice.
Increasingly, little ones are commonly brought into the clinic for manual therapeutic care and this course will up your game in the skills of assessing the baby, deciding on time-appropriate therapeutic intervention and giving movement based home advice for the parent.
All courses must be taken in order and are pre-requisites for each other.
Course A has an emphasis on the deep stabilization system (diaphragm, intra-abdominal pressure and intrinsic core), and developmental stages of newborn to 3 months with an emphasis on supine.
Course B1 has an emphasis on the neck, midline, common neck dysfunctions and the uprighting function in prone in the developmental stages of newborn to 3 months.
Course B2 is primarily lab oriented to compliment the online AB1 course and the clavicle and umbilicus.
Course C has an emphasis on the TL fascia, the shoulder, A/C joint and the 3-7 month milestones of grasping, uprighting and rolling. Clinical integration of hands-on treatment of infants.
Course D has an emphasis on the pelvis, pelvic floor, infant handling to facilitate positioning, home education and 7- 10 month milestones of transition through quadruped, oblique sitting to sitting, crawling and pulling up. Clinical integration of hands-on treatment of infants.
Advanced Clinical Courses
The advanced clinical courses will introduce new topics and will be clinical integration courses with plenty of hands-on experience with babies.
These courses have the pre-requisite of Course D.
About Judy Green
Over the past 20 years, Judy has been treating infants and young children as a particular passion. Judy previously worked as a physiotherapist specializing in neurology, brain injury and traumatic pain and in her early career, worked as a senior physiotherapist in Intensive Care.
On completion of her osteopathic studies and presentation of her thesis in 2001, she pursued continuing education in the field and has studied under many Osteopathic teachers including being mentored by Dr. James Jealous since 1995; having completed all adult phases 1-9 and paediatric phases 1-3, and has taken post graduate courses at the CCO and CEO. Judy became a certified Paediatric DNS Practitioner in Prague in 2015 and is currently the only certified Paediatric Vojta therapist in North America, having completed the 8 week course in Siegen, Germany in 2017. Her studies in Germany allowed deep insight into the developmental kinesiology as related to the emergent stabilization and movement mechanisms of the first year of life. This knowledge has allowed Judy to develop an evaluation system which is relevant to the timely provision of osteopathic treatment; creating ease in knowing which interventions are essential to the underpinnings of infant developmental milestones.
