Onto The Next Programs help reawaken the mind and entire brain to new and exciting thoughts, concepts, and positive change!

In order to educate elders toward minimizing cognitive decline, our comprehensive program maximizes use of the brain, mind, body and spirit and offers interactive support and training for the whole individual. When we use the Multi-Modal Method, tapping into these pre-verbal modalities, interactive participation helps synergistically stimulate the brain to both integrate and activate in new ways. The Program helps reawaken the mind and entire brain to new and exciting thoughts, concepts and ways to promote positive change! View a sample of program topics: please click here.

For years, Neuroscience has pointed to research that the adult brain holds its plasticity as it ages (please click here): the brain is able to create new, healthy neurons and synapses well into our later years. The term that is used to describe this is referred to as "neuroplasticity." The aging brain is able to remain viable, flexible and joyful as it encounters new activities to expand memory, focus and attention allowing new learning to take place!

Eons before language, literacy and scientific study, we sang, danced and used gestures in order to communicate. For centuries, in every culture, over the entire planet, these modalities were used. They are a pre-verbal part of our biology and the underpinnings of language as we know it today. We are in fact, wired for this. As a speech-language pathologist, incorporating the Multi-Modal Method (music, movement, manual motion--or sign language--and meditation) became the way for Linda Stoler to help children acquire and develop language and literacy skills as well as to learn the more creative, authentic aspects of themselves. Using these pre-verbal methods allowed information, learning and play to be completely integrated and absorbed by participants' evolving brains as well as their entire being. OntoTheNext has applied and expanded these methods in an interest toward minimizing the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s for our aging population. Statistics show an ever increasing adult population that is likely to be affected by either dementia--or Alzheimer’s--by age 85. Further, many more adults are noticing cognitive decline at a much earlier age. Dementia and Alzheimer's is the number one health concern of our seniors.
