Upcoming presentations scheduled for February and March.
I am pleased to announce the first in a series of presentations that One Giant Leap will be actively involved with, promoting, and delivering. As part of the overall mandate, the exchange of free information and knowledge is extremely valuable...therefore we will be actively searching for groups, associations, non-profit organizations, etc. who would benefit from a well-organized presentation covering diverse issues related to the rehabilitation of acute and chronic conditions, as well as mild to severe motor dysfunction.
The first presentation will be held in Cali, Colombia and will focus on an innovative technique for the rehabilitation of mild to severe motor dysfunctions. It will be presented by Richard Paletta, licensed physiotherapist and senior ABR instructor, in spanish and demonstrate the theoretical, conceptual, and practical considerations of this technique. Our efforts extend to all of the Americas, therefore I am hoping tp be able to network to groups, associations, organizations, and families across Canada and the U.S. and offer similar free presentations, seminars, and workshops. The topics covered in One Giant Leap are diverse...therefore the messages reflect this. It is not my mandate to endorse or promote one specific product or therapy...rather to engage in the most healthy exchange of useful information that will ultimately enable parents, families, and professionals to make comfortable and productive rehabilitative decisions.
Please stay tuned for upcoming presentations, and do not hesitate to communicate with me for information if needed.

Q&A on Seizures and Cerebral Palsy
This is the first in a series of Q&A sessions sponsored by One Giant Leap. The main objective of these sessions is to provide a forum for people to ask specific questions, exchange experiences, and contribute to their overall understanding of select topics and issues surrounding rehabilitation.
The issue of seizures is without question one of the most elusive and concerning challenges in Cerebral Palsy. It typically generates a significant amount of stress and worry within the CP community as well as the extended family. One of the most effective means of addressing seizures is to gain a practical, theoretical, and conceptual understanding of the genesis, manifestations, triggers, and other related topics.
Therefore One Giant Leap will open this discussion for a designated time and invite any and all questions, comments, feedback, and shared experiences of all kinds. Any specific questions related to seizures will be answered and addressed personally by One Giant Leap.
To post questions, comments, and experiences, go to the One Giant Leap Facebook Page.
All messages should be placed within the Q&A comment box on the One Giant Leap Facebook page. English, Francais, y espanol...all are welcome!
Session starts July 13th and will end July 23rd at 12:00am
