Living and working with children with Autism and/or exhibiting Sensory Processing Disorders can be rewarding, but it’s also very challenging! After speaking to audiences all over the country for the past three years for Summit Professional Education, I have met some amazing therapists, teachers and parents who say they have learned so much from my previous workshops however, I have to admit, I’ve been so inspired by them and have a passion to share even more information with this new workshop that can help those of you who are living in the trenches. At almost every one of my seminars, I’ve had someone come up at the end of the day and tell me how motivated they are to try new things, do things differently, educate others, revive activities they’d forgotten, work more with their own children and even start a new career!
I’ve learned from my audiences that although there is value in understanding autism and sensory issues, what people need the most help with is learning how to manage the apparent unmanageable behaviors that get in the way of learning, progressing and relationships. As a result, I have spent the past year researching new resources, building on tried and true strategies and refining more ways to equip you with the best tactics to impact children with difficult behaviors.
At this new workshop, we are going to have a chance to understand the foundations of sensory processing and autism, how we can impact arousal, how our attitude influences behavior and most importantly for our day – have fun!
As the publisher of S.I. Focus magazine, I have the unique opportunity to be made aware of many new resources available to our community of special needs. I will be sharing commercially- available and free resources that can give you an edge. The goal of this new workshop is not to give you survival techniques — you deserve more than just surviving. I want to help you thrive and feel that you are equipping the children in your environment to grow. I can’t wait to meet you at one of my workshops!
At the conclusion of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Prevent and manage inappropriate behaviors and meltdowns
- Seven Sensory domains and their impact on arousal
- Infinity Walk and other movement activities for you to use immediately
- Classroom Strategies to maximize vestibular and proprioceptive input
- Improve behavior in the classroom, at home and on the playground
- Resources to develop a sensory diet, improve sleep, enhance self-regulation and improve social skills
