Stress Management Joint Evaluation of Project Activities and Desired Results Evaluation occurs both to the quality of implementation of plans so far during the project and also regarding the extent of achievement of desired results from the project. As part of the final evaluation, you might redo some of the assessments that you used during the discovery phase in order to measure the difference made by the project.
This workshop is a must for the school-based therapist, who has limited space to work within, has limited funding and is determined to be an integral part of the school team. In this workshop, you will learn unique and everyday evidenced based practices when working with children with Sensory Modulation Disorder.
Illegible handwriting, also known as dysgraphia, is the primary reason for referrals to therapists practicing in school-based settings. Although handwriting instruction is the responsibility of teachers, the therapist's role is in the identification of the motor, sensory, and perceptual deficits underlying dysgraphia.
In this course you will learn signs and symptoms of the three different types of dysgraphia, dyslexic dysgraphia, motor dysgraphia, and spatial dysgraphia, and be able to identify functional handwriting challenges in school-age children. Assessment tools used to determine identification of dysgraphia will be discussed.
Attendees will ascertain a variety of remedial interventions and compensatory adaptations that can be used to assist children with success in functional written communication skills for scholastic achievement.
Case studies will be presented to demonstrate a progressive plan of care from dysgraphia identification to treatment outcomes. Select specific assessment tools to ascertain dysgraphia indicators and differentiate three types of dysgraphia; dyslexic dysgraphia, motor dysgraphia, and spatial dysgraphia.
Develop practical compensatory strategies and interventions for children with dysgraphia to improve productive handwriting skills. Presented by Jenny L.
Current evidence in sensory processing points to a neurological basis for this disorder. This epidemic of SPD in the pediatric population creates challenges for therapists and educators in providing effective intervention and support for children and their families.
Professionals need adequate training on the neuroscience foundations of SPD to understand why sensory driven behavior occurs and how to effectively address this disorder.
Participants will glean information about how to implement creative curriculum for early intervention, preschool and elementary school children. Attendees will discover how to design sensorimotor theme-based lesson plans that can be implemented immediately. Develop a repertoire of advanced insights into sensory processing disorder for evidence-based practices.
Integrate motor, cognitive, language and social emotional skill development into sensorimotor theme-based intervention Design and experience original lessons plan from the Learn to Move, Move to Learn curriculum.
Experience an exciting and fun new course by Jenny L. Because health is an important component of physical, mental, and emotional well-being, there is an increased need for wellness-related services. As the number of children with SPD increases and the correlation between nature-deficit disorder and prevalent childhood disorders is established, it is imperative for therapists to incorporate wellness interventions into their therapeutic strategies.
This course identifies a decrease in physical activity as a key problem in children with sensory processing disorder SPDattention deficit disorder ADHDand autism spectrum disorder ASD.
Therapists will learn why lack of movement contributes to physical, emotional, and behavioral challenges in children with childhood disorders as they are introduced to a variety of wellness strategies focusing on meaningful occupations, including outdoor activities in nature, healthy foods, yoga, deep breathing, and mindfulness activities.
In this course therapists will learn about the evidence-based therapeutic value of yoga for children and youth. Individual yoga poses are selected for discussion of sensory and musculoskeletal benefits. Therapists learn the assets of yoga as an effective approach to help children overcome deficits so that they can experience quality of life through meaningful and joyful activity.
This course will also examine the neuroscientific evidence about the benefits of exposure to nature. Participants will develop a repertoire of fun and practical activities to connect children with nature, ideas on how to bring the outdoors inside to schools and clinics, therapeutic gardening for children, geocaching, animal-assisted therapy, and more.
These pediatric health and wellness strategies and interventions include activities that parents, teachers, and therapists can implement in a variety of settings, and help children develop many important skills that can be applied to daily life experiences.
Examine current evidence illustrating health and wellness needs in the pediatric population to substantiate application of therapeutic interventions. Analyze health-related challenges in prevalent childhood disorders to correlate a common need across a diverse population of youth.
Develop a repertoire of occupation-based wellness interventions for youth that can be applied to home, school, and community settings. Interoception is an important sensory system that helps us to feel internal body signals like a full bladder, growling stomach, tense muscles or speeding heart.
Research indicates that our ability to clearly notice and understand these internal body signals enables us to accurately identify and control how we feel: Many individuals with conditions such as autism, ADHD, depression, trauma and anxiety disorders have difficulty with interoception, causing significant challenges in identifying and managing the way they feel.
This presentation will provide participants a firm understanding of interoception including an overview of what research tells us about interoception, and how to apply this research when developing effective programming.
Discussion will focus on the influence interoception has on many important aspects of life including emotional well-being, self-regulation, and social participation. Many evidence-based strategies for assessing and improving interoception will be shared. Every participant will leave with a tote bag full of posters to use right away!To register online, kindly email the following information to [email protected]: name, home address, cell number, and discipline.
Teacher professional development: an international review of the literature 8 In order to contribute to the knowledge base of educators, policy-makers.
