A Postgraduate Certificate in Motor Skills, Laterality and Writing is, at the present time, an invaluable tool for the neuropsychologist"  

The work in neuropsychology is complex. It covers a broad spectrum of intervention that requires the professional to have very specific training in the various branches of brain development. This discipline, deeply linked to neurology and the physiological study of the brain, is affected by the changes that the evolution of knowledge in this scientific branch achieves. For professionals, this means an intense challenge of continuous updating that allows them to be at the forefront in terms of approach, intervention and monitoring of the cases that may arise in their practice

Throughout this program, the student will review all the current approaches to the work practiced by neuropsychologists with regard to the different challenges posed by their profession  

The functioning of memory, language, the relationship between laterality and cognitive development, sensoriality and many other aspects, will be the topics of work and study that the student will be able to integrate in their training. A high-level step that will become a process of improvement, not only on a professional level, but also on a personal level 

This challenge is one of TECH's social commitments: to help highly qualified professionals to specialize and to develop their personal, social and labor competencies during the course of their training

We will not only take you through the theoretical knowledge we offer, but we will introduce you to another way of studying and learning, one which is simpler, more organic and more efficient. We will work to keep you motivated and to create in you a passion for learning. And we will push you to think and develop critical thinking 

A program created for professionals who aspire for excellence, and that will enable you to acquire new skills and strategies easily and effectively”

This Postgraduate Certificate in Motor Skills, Laterality and Writing contains the most complete and up-to-date program available. The most important features include:

  • The latest technology in online teaching software   
  • A highly visual teaching system, supported by graphic and schematic contents that are easy to assimilate and understand  
  • Practical cases presented by practicing experts  
  • State-of-the-art interactive video systems  
  • Teaching supported by telepractice  
  • Continuous updating and recycling systems  
  • Autonomous learning: full compatibility with other occupations
  • Practical exercises for self-evaluation and learning verification   
  • Support groups and educational synergies: questions to the expert, debate and knowledge forums
  • Communication with the teacher and individual reflection work  
  • Availability of content from any device, fixed or portable, with an Internet connection   
  • Complementary documentation banks permanently available, even after the Postgraduate Certificate   

Working psychomotor skills as a means of brain development in schools is one of the new challenges for neuropsychologists”

Our teaching staff is made up of working professionals. In this way we ensure that we provide you with the up-to-date training we are aiming for. A multidisciplinary team of physicians with training and experience in different environments, who will develop theoretical knowledge effectively, but, above all, will bring their practical knowledge derived from their own experience to the program: one of the differential qualities of this Postgraduate Certificate

This mastery of the subject is complemented by the effectiveness of the methodological design of this Postgraduate Certificate. Developed by a multidisciplinary team of e-learning experts, it integrates the latest advances in educational technology. In this way, you will be able to study with a range of comfortable and versatile multimedia tools that will give you the operability you need in your training

The design of this program is based on Problem-Based Learning: an approach that conceives learning as a highly practical process. To achieve this remotely, we will use telepractice learning: with the help of an innovative interactive video system, and learning from an expert, you will be able to acquire the knowledge as if you were actually dealing with the scenario you are learning about. A concept that will allow you to integrate and fix learning in a more realistic and permanent way

It incorporates the latest intervention programs in the area of literacy development through laterality"

The basic processes of cognitive development in relation to learning and school development, in an intensive and comprehensive training"


The contents of this program have been developed by the different teachers of this program, with a clear purpose: to ensure that our students acquire each and every one of the skills necessary to become true experts in this field

The content of this program enables you to learn all aspects of the different disciplines involved in this field: A complete and well-structured program that will take you to the highest standards of quality and success

Through a complete, but very well compartmentalized development, you will be able to access the most advanced knowledge of the moment in professional neuropsychology"
