Speaker Evening with Danielle Gregory - Why do sensory therapies often make a difference in ADHD? Why are they not as predictable as we would like them to be and what might we do to change that?"
This talk will describe how a 'systems approach' in functional neurology is not as complicated as it sounds, describe a little about the way we approach the brain, what we look at, what it means and give examples of some of the exercises that support foundational parts of the brain to provide for higher functions like attention and concentration.
It will look at some evaluations and a few exercises/tips for supporting brain function. It will discuss what some of the brain building blocks that allow us the space to‘pay attention’ are and how you can look at eye movements and other direct brain function measures to see what’s going on inside the brain.
Applied Clinical Neuroscience, also known as Functional Neurology is a model of translating neuroscience to clinical practice - it is essentially a brain-based therapy with objective measures and outcomes. It is a clinical reasoning system that uses observable brain outputs like eye movements, balance, movement, speech and more together with a knowledge of brain plasticity to provide gentle brain exercises to target areas of the brain that support higher functions.Danielle has presented for several years to Audiences at MINDD and the Australasian Academy of Functional Neurology (AAFN).
Danielle Gregory is a chiropractor who has spent the last decade working with patients in an applied clinical neuroscience model.
She is known for her willingness to ‘do the work worth doing’. Her practice in Edgecliff is built on a simple foundation - persistently solving the ‘challenging, complex cases’ over many years of them simply turning up!
• She has recently been appointed an ambassador of the MINDD foundation.
• Danielle regularly visits the top clinics and clinicians in the USA with some of the best practitioners in the ﬁeld,
• Danielle has been recognised for her support and ‘grunt work’ in building the Applied Clinical Neuroscience ﬁeld in Australia, building the AAFN conference to make it an international event, and through work on the AAFN board.
• Her clinic - ‘IDEAL Connexions’ is known for it’s work with - the limbic system, temporal lobe, and brainstem. It utilises a variety of disciplines working together in an applied clinical neuroscience model”
• IDEAL Connexions and Vestibular Workshops have run a number of Interdisciplinary seminars over the past few years on the temporal lobe and Vestibular System.
