Offering programs to the chiropractic profession to improve their technical excellence. We are looking to those dedicated chiropractors and chiropractic students who want to focus their mastery on delivering the chiropractic adjustment. While the triad for professional growth includes art, science, and philosophy, our programs are heavily weighted in the art and science of chiropractic.
The Institute is excited to announce our next premier online program:
Cranial Facial Distortions - Impact on Childhood Development
Have you ever noticed something developmentally different about a child but your concerns fell on deaf ears?
It is not until the situation becomes obvious that proper intervention is recommended. Knowing before the situation or condition escalates is paramount to achieving a more efficient, less stressful (both to the child and family) resolution.
It is important to note that these developmental “glitches”, while they may be common, are not normal and can affect proper neurological development (milestones, primal reflexes, and pre-programmed feedback loops). They can also manifest as only mild symptoms early in life and progress to more severe ones as the child reaches age 4 or 5.
If you are a concerned parent or a pediatric healthcare provider,
this class will offer you a new window to look through.
- Is the child reaching their developmental milestones on time?
- Do they overreact in stressful situations?
- Do they have problems relating to their peers?
- Do they get frustrated easily?
- Is feeding and nursing a difficult and stressful process?
- Are they unable to calm themselves and appear to be in pain or discomfort after eating/feeding?
- Are their sleep patterns inconsistent?
We know that the potential of the child is huge. All parents want their children to have the best opportunity to realize that potential.
The course format will give you a step-by-step guide to understand what influences, or patterns, may be signs of underlying developmental issues facing your child and what you can do to support them.
This course will help parents and health care practitioners use the child’s precious early years to the fullest.
You will receive 10 modules over a 3-month period.

"After reading the book, It’s All in the Head, which I found helpful in so many ways, this thought came to mind. How wonderful to have you, the authors, teach a course based on this book for those of us outside the chiropractic profession. To have class discussion online with visual aids (photos, videos, and detailed diagrams) will further imprint the necessary pointers to look for as a lay person. I believe many people will benefit from this as they could then learn in even more detail all this important information."

"It’s All in the Head is a must have book for not only chiropractors, but also for parents and anyone working with children. It is exciting to know that now there is a course for everyone to engage with 2 of the leading pediatric chiropractors who wrote the book. This class offers an opportunity to delve into the world of human potential from a salutogenic viewpoint. The information is insightful and gives clear meaning to what is common versus what is normal in your child’s development. You will gain a better understanding of your child’s developmental processes. It answers many questions including why and how cranial distortions affect not only structure but neurological function as well."
