Home Exercises I Can Do for Special Needs - Alternative Solutions To or With Your Current Therapy

This is What Can Happen with Consistent and Daily practice of Movement Lesson in Your Home.

Up until a month ago, to help my daughter be upright and "walking"‍, it required someone to hold her and crouch over while she moved her legs in a walking motion.
Life started out pretty rough for her, and bandaids and syringes were her play toys because they were light enough for her to pick up, hold, and play with.


Movement Lesson™ Offers Hope for Your Child's Progress and Development

This is something I never expected to see.

I knew that because of Movement Lesson, her body had the movement input of walking. 


Here is a video of her first time in the walker and playing the piano on her own. 


It's been 4 years since I started ML with my daughter.
When she got in this walker and took off like she had been doing it all of her life, and because of Movement Lesson she had been.

The right leg needed just a little.

Typical vs Atypical Child Development


From the first few days of life, you can identify where a child does and does not cross midline.

When a child lacks midline crossing, it will cause delays in milestone achievement or stop milestone development.
From the first few days of life, you can completely change your child's future with the Movement Lesson™ Midline Evaluation and the Newborn Movement Assessment.
Often parents find me when their child is 5 to 6 months old and the child is not rolling over.
While genetic, trauma and bone structure can prevent this milestone, more often than not, the reason why the child can't rollover is that the child can't cross midline in all midline points of the body.

Movement Lesson™ is the only alternative solution that teaches parents how to recognize, evaluate, and initiate midline crossing in all parts of the body.

These points include the head, chest, spine, shoulder, elbows, hands,...

The Power of Improving Movement by 1 PERCENT DAILY

What do 1%, a bicycle 🚴‍♂️, an airplane✈️, a tractor🚜, and Movement Lesson have in common?

The biggest challenge I see parents having when practicing this modality is knowing WHY when they are not sure exactly how Movement Lesson is affecting the body.
So I hope this video helps you understand WHY I am encouraging you to practice Movement Lesson every day or as consistently as you can.

 Instead of thinking "HOW DO I TAKE THE TIME FOR...?" think, "WHY DO I TAKE THE TIME FOR...?"

Hi, my name is Erin Fulks, I am a Movement Lesson Practitioner and I work with Michelle Turner.
In this video, I share part of my story of WHY I learned Movement Lesson and WHY I continue to do it even though I am a mother of 5 young children, two with special needs, I have all my home responsibilities, and I work full time.
It's easy for me not to do ML if I think HOW I am going to do it that day.
When I think of WHY, my perspective and my...

How to Help Your Uterus Recover After Pregnancy

uterus recovery Nov 19, 2021

One of my specialties is uterus integration.

Many surgeons incorrectly sew the uterus forward, to the belly, versus allowing it to shrink back towards the spine and back pelvis.
Complications that can arise from an incorrect restructuring leads to a higher level of postpartum depression and serious postpartum fatigue.
Not to mention the inability to have a natural birth from this point forward.
Knowing how your stomach wall and pelvic floor are structured prior to delivery and discussing this with your surgeon is very important.
It can change the way you move for the rest of your life.

How to Improve Movement on a Daily Basis with this Assessment Process

The ONE THING you need to know to help your child have IMPROVED MOVEMENT on a daily basis!

Give your child a daily movement assessment to identify where rotational movements are lacking in the body.
When rotational movements are lacking in the body, then milestone movements are delayed or don't happen at all.
After doing a 1-minute movement assessment on your child, then do a 5-15 minutes Movement Lesson to start putting rotation back in the parts of the body that have the least amount of rotation.

When you do this you improve...

NICU Trauma Effects Later in Life AND What You Can Do About It!

nicu trama effects Nov 18, 2021

As you know, I work with a lot of children that have had time in the NICU.

Not all NICU stays are dealing with respiratory distress however, they do usually involve facial pinning.
I would like to start discussions of milestone availability and facial/cranial interruptions of development.
Many of you know, that I can 'see' or notice the movement presence of devices that impede movement during the application.
A baby's body can remain in the situation - long after the device has been removed.
I do want to stress that medical intervention is necessary and shouldn't be avoided or have a sense of guilt around the course of actions taken to save your child's life.
I would like to make this information more available so that you can take the steps needed to bring back movement into your child's life.

Let's look at intubation.

Your child's breathing is now being forced through an endotracheal tube (ET).

What can you do to be more in tune with your child's needs?

The biggest desire I have for my kids is to help them reach their full potential mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Something Michelle Turner always says is, "When do you panic? when you don't have options."
I have seen that to be true over and over for my kids.
Just the other day a bee flew in the car and my 3-year-old had a look of terror on her face as she sat buckled and screaming with the bee coming towards her face.
She couldn't do anything or go anywhere.
She was stuck and was at the mercy of the bee.
I have watched my disabled children express frustration when they lack the ability to push a simple button on a toy or fall to the ground like a rock because they don't have the ability to catch themselves or prevent the fall.
Whether a child is typical or atypical when the child has options to move, the child has options for success.
It's one thing to choose not to push a button, it's another thing entirely when a...

Super Baby Secret #2 - All Babies Need to Move


It's obvious that all babies need to move, but there is more to baby movements that meets the eye.

Does milestone development just happen, or do you think there should be a step-by-step process we all go through to experience optimal development?

It's obvious that all babies don't move the same, but my question is why? 

I know why. 

In my podcast Baby Movements from Birth to 24 months, I share with you the answers to this question and what you can do about it.

You Want Your Baby to Experience "Normal" Development?

I say "normal" because what is "normal?" I want to redefine what you think about baby movements and what they mean for your baby's future development.

Atypical Development

You may have a child with special needs and think it's impossible for your child to experience "normal" development. 

Your child can experience "normal" development, but not in the way you...
