Rosanne is the owner of Discoveries in Therapy and has been an occupational therapist since 1987. Her intense curiosity of the brain and behavior has driven her professional journey. Rosanne values the freedom to do the work needed to genuinely help children without the constraints of a system. She has done many things to add to her knowledge including teaching at the University of Manitoba; developing a sexuality curriculum for special needs students in a local school division; presenting at many conferences; co-facilitating a support group for parents of children with Asperger’s Syndrome; attending an ALERT course on self regulation; attending conferences on attachment by Bruce Perry and Daniel Siegel; and participating in online webinars through the National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine focusing on attachment, current brain research and meditation (Jack Kornberg).
The pivotal learning about the brain and behavior began when she trained as a Relationship Development Intervention (RDI)® program certified consultant in 2004. It was, and continues to be, an incredible journey about the powerful impact of relationships on children’s developing minds. This training focuses on development, attachment and coaching parents/caregivers to recognize the moments of emotional and cognitive connection with their child. Relationships can clearly change the biology of the brain!
