Course Description: There are little kids and there are big kids. What about the kids in between? This presentation is mostly about the children that are in the primary school age range, 5 – 12. These are the kids who are getting started in school, having reduced free time, play time, and physical activity while being prepped for recall of enormous amounts of information. This presentation will discuss the challenges of the child’s nervous system and health during these formative years, what we can look for when assessing their health, and how parents can better prepare them and be engaging in their environment.
