EMAIL INFO@THERAMOVES.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION


Telehealth is a viable option for therapeutic intervention. In this presentation participants will learn what pediatric telehealth entails including standards of practice recommended by AOTA and APTA associations.Teletherapy evidence will be discussed in relation to efficacy for implementation. Participants will learn the ‘How To’s’ of teleintervention from start to finish, including what technology and equipment is needed. This presentation will focus on practical application of therapy services and brain storm challenges that may occur, including how to deal with difficult behaviors when you are not there in person, and how to be creative with treatment activities when you don’t have a “therapy bag”. Join us in this 2-hour presentation and learn effective approaches for teletherapy, and go away with practical resources you can implement immediately.


Course objectives:

1. Discuss teletherapy guidelines and applications for children.

2. Learn the essentials for effective implementation of teletherapy in school-based and home-based settings.

3. Develop a repertoire of problem-solving strategies for teleintervention in pediatrics.

WEB CONFERENCE - EVERY BRAIN IS DIFFERENT: How to Help Children with DEVELOPMENTAL DYSGRAPHIA for handwriting success

 Presenter:   

JENNY CLARK, OTR/L


MONDAY, APRIL 27, 2020


6:50 pm EST - 10:00 pm EST

3 contact hours


EMAIL INFO@THERAMOVES.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION
 

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.

For Speech Therapists Too!

 

Preschool - School-Age 

Participants learn how to easily incorporate therapy based movement into the classroom setting to enhance learning potential for all students. Nine student learner profiles are discussed (i.e. dyslexic, developmental, muddled, reluctant, muddled learner/reader) with innovative and novel movement activities to support each type of learner. Participants learn ways to transfer skills taught in the therapy room to the classroom setting for optimizing learning. Through the use of S’cool Moves activities students improve motor planning, rhythm, timing, core strength, vestibular activation, hemispheric integration, and sensory-motor systems within the context of academic skill acquisition. As always, S’cool Moves is all about collaboration, so therapists and teachers will grow in their understanding of approaching learning and reading as a team sport. This course deepens participants’ understanding of how to support learners and struggling readers using a neurodevelopmental approach. 

 
**S’cool Moves level 1 course is recommended, but not required prior to taking this course**

14 Contact Hours

8:00 am - 4:30 pm

  

While oral-motor treatment approaches for neurologically impaired children have focused on severe feeding dysfunction, recent clinical work with children who have sensory processing/developmental dysfunction has revealed a strong association between subtle oral-motor and respiratory dysfunction and many sensory integrative and sensory motor problems.

A framework for understanding how and why many aspects of development are significantly influenced by oral functions will be presented. This discussion will include the relationship of the suck/swallow/breathe synchrony to behavior, learning, postural development, feeding, communication, arousal, self-regulation, psychosocial development and even common health issues in children. The relevance of this information to treatment principles with children who have sensory processing/developmental dysfunction will then be shared using slides, case examples and participant lab activities. Documentation strategies for identifying abnormal function and demonstrating change through treatment will be provided. This information is particularly useful for occupational and physical therapists and speech pathologists working with children, but may be applied across the age span

QUEENS, NY - Brain Balance: How to Asses and Treat Brain Imbalances in Children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders

  Presenter:   

Dr. Robert Melillo 

Nationwide Presenter, Noted Author

Wednesday, June 3, 2020

Practical

Hands-on

Many Take-Home Activities

Testing and Treatment for Primitive Reflexes

 

*Each participant will be receiving one of Dr. Melillo's books! 


This reflex integration course will provide participants with lecture and hands-on practice for learning how to evaluate and treat school age children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as 

ADHD

OCD

Autism

Dyslexia

Attendees will learn how an imbalance of the two hemispheres of the brain can lead to neurodevelopmental conditions. Identification of which areas of the brain may be affected as well as why this may occur will be reviewed. 

Through course demonstration, participants will learn how to use examination tools and techniques to test for brain imbalance. Treatment protocols based on examination findings will then be reviewed. The role of primitive reflexes will be addressed, and remediation activities will be provided. Hands-on techniques to help balance the brain will be demonstrated and practiced.

 This practical two-day, activity-oriented workshop provides a theoretical overview of sensorimotor integration and its impact postural organization, and the underpinnings of visual and auditory attention. Additionally, participants will explore each of the sensory systems and their impact on arousal, affect regulation, organization of functional movement patterns that support attention and learning. An experiential learning lab will introduce a specific clinical observation tool that will more precisely guide treatment planning. 


Participants will leave with an understanding of treatment principles and practical activity suggestions that can be tailored to each individual and are appropriate for a variety of environments. Come dressed to move, explore, and learn!
