3rd Annual Medical Conference

Integrative Assessment in Learning and Child-Development with Susan R. Johnson, MD, FAAP



This two-day workshop will provide an in-depth look at the way in which a child senses and relates to his or her own body, through the experience of touch, balance, movement, as well as a general sense of well-being. Dr. Johnson will provide a deeper holistic understanding of the imbalances that stand behind many of the diagnostic labels given to children today (such as ADD, autistic spectrum disorders and dyslexia) and discuss methods for assessing whether children are phonetically reading. There will also be an exploration of how these foundational senses are related to the development of learning and thinking in the older child and how they are needed for the continued development of the higher intellectual and moral capacities in adulthood.

susanrjohnsonDr. Johnson is a behavioral and developmental pediatrician. After completing a three-year residency and a three-year fellowship in behavioral and developmental pediatrics she worked for seven years as the physician director for the School Health Center in San Francisco. After the birth of her son, she was introduced to Waldorf Education and became a Certified Waldorf Teacher. She spent an additional year of training in the Extra Lesson/Sensory Integration Program at Rudolf Steiner College with Ingun Schneider. She also attended a special training course in Anthroposophically-extended Medicine at the Lukas Clinic in Arlesheim, Switzerland. Dr. Johnson makes visits to Waldorf Schools and has a private practice in Colfax, CA.
