Why study online with us?

Your Instructor and Author of this course is a female Osteopath who, over the last fifteen years,  has had the privilege of assisting hundreds of pregnant women and their children to overcome many of the dysfunctions that you will find in an Osteopathic Clinic.  She has taught this course many times live to Osteopaths and is known for having a engaging, yet knowledgeable teaching style.  Her fondness for mentoring Osteopaths become adept and sensitive to the needs of Pregnant Moms and their Children is communicated throughout the entire course.  

As a result, next to her course Treating the Obstetrical Patient Throughout all of the Stages of Pregnancy: An Osteopathic Approach, this is one of  the most popular and in-demand continuing education  courses we offer at the Center for Continuing Education of Osteopathy.  

We introduce the fundamental concepts of the mechanics of Pediatric Osteopathy, and teach you Osteopath how to successfully treat some of the most common dysfunctions  found  in Newborns in an Osteopathic  clinical  setting : 

1) Cranial Distortions 

2) Digestive  Disturbances

 3) Latching & Feeding difficulties 

4)  Orthopedic  Birth Trauma Injuries 

A detailed curriculum of the course can be read below.

Throughout the course, students can ask questions.  Our Instructor devotes time each week to thoughtfully answering those questions and ensuring you are comfortable with the course material and practice times.

How the Course Works:

The course runs over ten weeks with one chapter released weekly.

An additional four weeks are allowed at the end of the course to submit all of your homework assignments and be awarded your Certificate of Completion.  

You WILL have access to the course in order to be able to review the material or watch the demonstration videos over and over, for a total of six months.  

Your learning experience  includes over thirty demonstration videos of individual techniques, as well as demonstrations of complete Treatment Protocols.  You can go back and watch the demonstration videos as many times as you want for the duration of the course.

 Advanced concepts and treatment protocols are discussed in audio format along with images and text for each condition.  Interesting and relevant case studies are also reviewed and are part of your homework.

There is approx 15 hours on-line learning with teaching in audio and video format accompanying each page, technique, and treatment protocol, and an additional 15 hours of homework assignments in the form of clinical practice related to each chapter, making this course a total of CPD 30 hours.

Homework Practice Sheets, Assessment Forms, and Step-by-Step Treatment Protocols for you to practice each week at your clinic are provided to you to download at the end of each chapter.   

Cranial Osteopathy:

We assume you already have a basic knowledge and training of Cranial Osteopathy and will need it to to fully appreciate the chapters and protocols that include Cranial Osteopathy in this course.  If you feel you need a review of basic Cranial Osteopathy concepts, students have the option of ordering the Workbook that accompanies our four day crash course in the Fundamentals of Cranial Osteopathy & Cranio-Sacral Therapy.  

What you will need:

You will need to purchase a soft, pliable doll (like the one in the video shown above) to practice the individual techniques on, well as hopefully recruit some volunteer Birthmothers and their Newborns for in-clinic practice.  A schedule of exact dates each chapter and subject will be released is included in the Introduction, so you can pre-arrange for appropriate volunteers to practice on.  

You will also need access to a printer.

The Accompanying Workbook:

At the end of the course, students who enroll in the online course can request free access to download a desktop, read-only version of the Workbook that was written to accompany the live course.  Since everything that is written in the Workbook is found within the online course, including many downloads at the end of each chapter, students do not need the Workbook to pursue their online learning.  A desktop copy of the Workbook is provided to our online students as complimentary service by the ICEO and is not an integral part of your online learning experience.  At this time, we do not authorize printing copies of our course Workbook to online students.


Non-Refund Policy:

Enrollment in all ICEO courses are non- refundable. If unforseeable valid personal or medical reasons are provided (with written proof), a student may apply to enroll in the same course the next time it is offered.  Any student who falls behind in the online course with homework submissions must apply  for an extension or will be enrolled in a future dated course, according to the discretion of our Educational Director and the Instructor for this course, Maureen N. Maher

About the instructor

Since Maureen began teaching, she found that not only does she have a natural gift for it (her parents were both teachers, so let hear it for genetics!), she found that she also holds a great desire to give back to the community and a profession that has been so fulfilling to her, and share over fifteen years of acquired experience and knowledge.   

Maureen brings extensive knowledge in Osteopathy  to her educational seminars.  

Throughout her career, Maureen has been an accredited member in good standing in several provinces across Canada, as well as overseas, including being an Associate Overseas member of the Australian Osteopathic Association (AOA) since 2008.  After undergoing accreditation evaluation for foreign trained Osteopaths in Perth, WA, Maureen was offered a practice in one of Singapore's leading Osteopathic Clinics, giving her the distinction of having been the first Canadian trained Osteopath to be approved to practice  in South East Asia.   Right before the worldwide economic collapse, Maureen was offered a position in Shanghai China, which required accreditation with the GOSC, UK, which she underwent, but as prevailing economic conditions worsened, the position was put on hold, and Maureen then settled in Toronto, Canada, where after reluctantly accepting a poorly paid teaching contract, her students began asking her to design courses in more specialized subjects within Osteopathy.  It was not long after that Maureen founded the Center for Continuing Education where she continued to innovate every day!

Maureen has collaborated in the curriculum design with various new Osteopathic schools, and teaches continuing education seminars across Canada and Europe.  Her students say that Maureen's teaching style is animated, engaging, but most importantly, informative.  Her gift lies in communicating complex theories in simple terms and analogies.  Her students come away with a clear grasp of Osteopathic concepts for treatment, and practical knowledge of how to apply them.  Students who enroll in any of our continuing education seminars can contact Maureen at any future date with clinical questions.  As a result, many Osteopaths worldwide still consult with her today regarding challenging Osteopathy cases.
