About REBOOT: Jacky Peile and the team at Early Links have been building the REBOOT Sport program for the last 3 years, and now it's ready for launching.
Our mission is to give athletes and coaches a fresh approach when it seems that everything else has reached plateau - the sensory integrative process.
Jacky Peile and Kate Keisler are Occupational Therapists who have a toolbox full of practical strategies. Teachers and Counselors that work with children who have experience trauma will benefit from attending this Webinar... Learn more...
Occupational Therapy can be used to support improvements in functional movements, from a neuromuscular and developmental aspect. Both hands-on and activity based relearning is supported through exploration and discussion. This WEBINAR provides coaches with an opportunity to build their understanding of key points within "function-developmental neuro-physicological" movement patterns. The building blocks for complex and skilled movements which are often overlooked in other treatment and coaching principles
Students of Occupational Therapy who have a passion for learning...you're invited to attend a special training event with the Team from Early Links on Sunday 11th September. Topic covered will help you make a positive impression on your supervisors and excel your clinical reasoning and the development of your professional identity.
REBOOT on Cockatoo Island was an enjoyable relaxing event that helped four (4) people to realise they were stressed and not managing their stress-behaviours well. We will be posting a BLOG later this month with the outcomes of their progress.

Will from Surprise Me Chef, who catered
