3839 White Ave,
Eau Claire, WI  54703  USA

Course Description:

Children with Sensory Processing Disorders, ADHD or autism have much in common. They are challenged with physical problems that affect their ability to focus and can also cause them to be emotionally reactive. Children who have trouble self-regulating throughout the day are missing out on typical childhood experiences in school, on the playground and with their families. They have difficulty making and keeping friends.

This workshop looks at the underlying factors of poor self-regulation and how they affect the child. The course emphasizes practical interventions! You will walk away with effective strategies for creating simple but effective programs in clinical, school and home settings:
• Sensory therapy techniques
• Simple self-management and video modeling programs
• Sensory lifestyle programs
• First-person stories
• Energy regulation techniques
• Communication methods
• Transition strategies
• Behavioral strategies

Clinical programs such as Interactive Metronome® (IM), brushing, sensory diets, and MeMoves™ will be discussed, as will timely topics such as medication vs. non-medication for ADHD and new insights from research into biomedical aspects of autism. You will receive written handouts and a list of resources.
