This Master Class is for the professional who wants to learn more strategies and techniques, have advanced treatment examples, and become more knowledgeable of the scope and sequence to implement executive function strategies. This seminar will get you thinking in new ways about how to utilize the 360 Thinking Program interventions, will help you to understand where to start, what goals to set for your client, and give you the opportunity to make and practice implementing a Toolbox of Strategies for teaching executive function skills. We will address at an advanced level how to teach students to channel their motivation and go from Intention to Action by creating and carrying out plans and to sustain forethought for task planning across hourly and extended time horizons. Learn systematic ways to develop a student’s situational intelligence and self regulation to stop, observe and read a room, orient to the expectation in a moment in time, decide a course of action and then act within allotted time frames. Understand the relationship between speed of processing and executive function and learn practical strategies to improve written expression, abstract thinking/problem solving and figurative language skills.

“ 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 “
The course will help provide an understanding of the child’s behavior and lack of participation in the school environment by considering not only psychological factors intrinsic to the child, but also the classroom activities that place demands on the child and the context in which these activities are implemented.
This evidence-based course provides an array of “everyday tools” that work well within a clinical framework, A SECRET, and can be easily implemented into a child’s educational and family plan.

This is a 3-day course designed for physical therapists treating pediatric clients with standing and gait disorders. The course emphasizes a knowledge base of normal adult gait and the developmental stages of normal pediatric gait as a basis for treatment. The last day includes opportunities for ‘hands on’ practice to integrate the principles learned in the course.
The course examines body alignment, joint motion and muscle activation in adult gait. The same parameters are analyzed in the developmental progression from early weight bearing through cruising, early ambulation and the toddler gait. Observational and hands-on labs are included.
How commonly seen deviations in this progression affect the pattern and efficiency of gait will be discussed. The continuum of pathological gait development will be analyzed. Practical application to treatment techniques will be included in demonstration labs and short treatment sessions with pediatric clients.
The course utilizes a combination of lecture/discussion, observation, facilitation labs and treatment sessions.

Vision and visual processing are essential to the development of the
children we work with. This requires professionals to optimize vision (what the eyes see) and visual processing skills (how we use what we see). This 3-hour workshop will examine vision and visual processing, covering basic techniques for identifying visual processing problems in children, providing practical strategies for optimizing visual processing, and presenting fun therapeutic activities that build essential skills.
Strategies for seating, position, and environmental modifications that optimize visual processing will also be discussed.

Each participant will be receiving,
balls, bean bags and vision tools to use right away!
This course will explore the importance of coordinated movements, self-regulation and object manipulation for brain-body integration using movement/balance, sandbags and balls. These are used in childhood games and even into adult life with professional baseball, tennis, football, etc. Games are won based on skills, precision, balance, and timing, along with behavioral factors such as focus, cooperation, planning, and responding (feedforward and feedback). Sensory processing principles related to vestibular, proprioceptive, auditory and visual processing will be integrated with popular programs - Bal-A-Vis-X® (balance, auditory, visual eXercises), Brain Gym® and Infinity® Concepts, yoga and reflex integration programs. These programs have had a great influence in my work with children and adults who have an array of physical and cognitive challenges in a variety of settings.
Participants will leave this course with a bundle of activity ideas to use the next day at school, home or in treatment sessions with individuals or groups, from preschoolers to senior citizens.
