About Cate

Catherine Thomas holds a B.S.Ed. in Elementary Education, a B.F.A.and M.F.A., and began her PHD in Art Education for Special Needs.  In graduate school, she worked with deaf, blind, and autistic children. Upon realizing the importance of movement as a catalyst for learning, she changed her focus towards kinesiology and movement for rehabilitation.  In the early 1970’s she was introduced to the work of Moshe Feldenkrais, as she continued to work with special needs children and adults. She has been in practice and ongoing training in various neurological Movement Methodologies for thirty years.  As a Practitioner, Teacher and Educator who has worked with Medical professionals for over  twenty years, Cate develops and teaches group programs, and offers private Lessons and coaching sessions.   Her focus is on the application of the Method in support of medical situations, with  interest in infants, children, seniors, high performers(dancers, musicians, vitality) and athletes.  Cate also works with special needs cases of all ages to ensure progress where there had been difficulty or little hope, and her work is of great value where learning is heightened for a more functional and meaningful life.

    You should start posting teleseminars. Get your client list together and offer them orally and as transcripts (yes, charge for this, and I’ll do the transcripts for a reasonable fee). Then, do an ebook. You’re qualified. Just my opinion 🙂

    Also, if you have the money for it, you could probably use a little SEO so that you get ranked on google as an educator of special needs. It’s a hot topic these days.
