Frequently asked questions
What do you offer that I cannot get at other schools?
All courses, from beginner introduction to advanced instructor tracks, are taught by Certified Perception-Action Approach Instructors who are recognized as highly skilled practitioners working at the leading edge of evidence-based movement therapy.
Do I need previous experience?
Courses are available from entry level to advanced. While certification and advanced course work is geared toward clinical practitioners, entry level courses are open to all.
How can I choose my courses?
We offer a number of different learning paths to suit your learning needs. Additionally, if your site or group has specific learning objectives, we will work with you to tailor courses to meet host site needs. If you have questions or need clarification, please reach out via the contact us page.
How is the Perception-Action Approach different from other approaches?
Unlike other approaches that promote facilitation of “appropriate motor patterns” as a means to reduce errors, the Perception-Action Approach honors spontaneous and self-driven exploration that is necessary to generate perceptual information for learning. Trial and error are needed for learning to occur.
What types of conditions are commonly treated with P-AA?
Perception-Action Approach can be used with all movement disorders including, but not limited to, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, stroke, genetic or congenital disorders.
Why is Professional Liability Insurance required for some courses?
Multi-day certification track and advanced courses have direct patient contact components that require both licensure and liability insurance.
