Dr. Doscher has authored several publications, which are invaluable resources for both professional peers and families wanting to help the neurologically disorganized child in a natural way to reach their optimal potential
Her latest publications include:
And Now What Do I Do? (ISBN: 978-0-9794722-0-6). This guide helps identify the early signs of subluxation as well as steps to reach optimal potential. Many parents tell us at Oklahaven they wish they had known to look for the earliest signs of subluxation, indicative of a child’s compromised neurological development. After working with children for many years, we have discovered the early signs of subluxation will manifest into physical, mental, emotional, and/or social impairments.
A Guide to Functional Neurological Evaluation (ISBN: 978-0-9794722-1-3) shows how to observe the important correlation between a child’s neurological age (function and actual ability) and a child’s chronological age. When the two ages do not match, it is a sign that subluxation exists, which creates a lack of ease in the body, manifesting as a gap between these ages and creating some degree of sensory and motor shutdown. Any discrepancies between the two ages will affect the child’s performance and delay abilities to solve problems. The book demonstrates the early signs of subluxation and how the child’s life-force is diminished, manifesting into neurological disorganization and lack of function.
Turkey Notes (ISBN: 978-0-9794722-2-0) was created from a tradition Dr. Bobby Doscher learned at the Putnam Museum in Davenport, Iowa. Since then she has used Turkey Notes to learn about others’ experiences. Presented as small scrolls at each place setting, these “notes” are questions, which range from the thoughtful to the fun. Questions such as “What did you learn this year” are designed to help the guests get to know each other better.
