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. Don’t miss this opportunity – register today! Course Objectives: •Communicate characteristics of sensory modulation disorder, ADHD and autism and how they overlap. • Modify specific treatments for SPD that can be duplicated at school or home. • Design a sensory lifestyle program using readily-found items. • Determine elements of successful first-person stories and transitional activities. • Recommend ADHD interventions to be used with or without meds. • Implement a simple self-management and video modeling program. • Employ communication strategies that provide emotional control for children with ASD.
