You asked for a Vision Course and We Listened!! Here is a practical take home idea course that is sure to enhance your practice!
Each participant will leave with a bag of items that they can use the next day in their treatment sessions.
This workshop will be EXTREMELY hands on. "Why "EYE" Can't Read" is a course developed with therapy in mind. This course will address the visual system and how visual deficits affect a students ability to read, stay on task, attend and comprehend. An appreciation for the role the visual system plays in seeming 'disorders' will be discovered.
Participants will learn general guidelines in detecting visual deficits and how to incorporate other sensory systems using many hands-on visually guided activities. Participants will walk away with the ability to create treatment plans for each individual child.
Designed for therapists, this course will provide hands-on interventions to promote optimal visual function necessary for attention, reading and focus.
Each participant will leave with practical ideas that can be implemented right away into their sessions, either through greater observational skills or treatment ideas.
At the Conclusion of this class, the participant shall be able to:
This presentation will demystify sensory processing difficulties in school-age children, emphasizing practical strategies and solutions for maximizing participation in self-care, learning, and playing at home, at school, and in the community.
Topics will include:
• How to pinpoint sensory processing problems
• Techniques for decreasing sensitivity to noise, touch, movement, visuals, taste and smell while improving ability to handle multisensory input
• Practical strategies for daily life challenges such as dressing and grooming, circle time/chair time, and sensory overload
• Sensory diet activities that help kids reach and maintain an optimal state of arousal
• Ways to avoid overstimulation and deal with self-stimulatory behaviors and meltdowns
Attendees will be able to:
1. Define sensory processing and recognize sensory processing challenges in school-age children
2. Understand how sensory challenges impact behavior and learning.
3. Implement at least 15 “sensory diet” activities and environmental modifications to help children reach and maintain an optimal state of arousal.
4. Use strategies to cope with sensitivity to noise, touch, movement, sights, taste and smell and sensory overload
5. Share “sensory smart” parenting and teaching strategies with others.
All levels with primary focus on occupational therapists (beginner level) special education and general education teachers, speech therapists, physical therapists, social workers, and others.
Evidence-Based Neuroscience Foundations in Sensory Processing Disorder
Janet will be joined by BRACHA BUCHOLZ, PT (private practice in New Jersey)
This course is designed to help the learner understand the importance of integrating primitive reflexes and the impact a non-integrated reflex has on neurodevelopment. Integrated reflexes anchor emotion and behavioral regulation, improve concentration, muscle tone, motor coordination and cognitive pathways for learning. RMT explores techniques to assess and integrate primary motor reflex patterns using brain-building movements for help with concerns related to: ADD/ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Anxiety, Speech, Learning and Developmental Delays, Social, Emotional, Sensory, Behavioral and Motor Challenges.
RMT 1 - Objectives: How rhythmic movements assist in integrating reflexes, why this it important, and how to stimulate brain connections for increased impulse control, attention, balance, coordination, stamina, and learning.
RMT 2 - Objectives: Learn effective RMT techniques for integrating developmental reflexes that are critically important for sensory integration as well as social and emotional maturity. Learn movements that release anxiety and stored emotional tension.
This is a one day, 2-module workshop that is specifically designed to help therapists and educators. Participants will gain key tenets where if implemented correctly will enrich their educational career experience.
Module 1 - Provides proven enhancements towards the development of a constructive relationship with each client in their care.
Upon completing the workshop, participants will take with them effective, practical tools and sensory strategies to incorporate into the daily setting, so they can do what they do best—Treat!
Module 2 - Provides proven strategies and interventions that therapists and educators will be able to use in order to maintain consistent rules and regulation within the classroom to predict and manage problematic behaviors and attitudes that are faced daily.
The learning objectives will be infused with real-life case studies in an effort to further the practicality of the course.
Both modules will provide a unique and in depth understanding of the critical facets of behavioral and social-emotional challenges that will provide participants with the appropriate tools for understanding the reasons behind specific behaviors and attitudes. After participants understand the source of the problem, they will then be taught how to tailor their approach towards the specific issue they are encountering. These unique approaches will positively affect changes in attitude, behavior, and academic performance of the students. The result will not only provide for a smooth running classroom and therapy sessions but also will mitigate and often eliminate the problem. Participants will learn the relationship between *Anxious Attachment and *Avoidant Attachment and strategies to overcome behavioral and social-emotional challenges

This seminar will focus on the evaluation and treatment of sensory processing disorders as it pertains to understanding praxis and motor learning. It will present the Practical neuroscience hierarchy of the of the SPD model and its correlates to behavior across different diagnoses with the most effective treatment strategies for schools and clinical settings.
This is a practical strategies seminar you don't want to miss!
° First you will learn how to clearly define what the executive function skills are for the purpose of determining the most effective treatment interventions.
° Understand the development of the executive function skills and what is meant by the term “executive dysfunction”.
° You will learn dozens of functional, ready-to-use strategies for teaching students how to develop the executive function skills.
° Teach students to develop a “memory for the future”, to devise plans to achieve their goal, to use self talk, to self-initiate, to transition to the next task of higher priority and to control their impulses and emotions to successfully complete a task.
° Improve a student’s awareness skills so that he/she can “read a room” then “stop, think and create” an appropriate action plan and infer possible outcomes.
° Teach students to see and sense the passage of time, accurately estimate how long tasks will take, change or maintain their pace, and carry out routines and tasks within allotted time frames.
° Learn methods to improve a student’s ability to cognitively shift and to be flexible in processing and accessing information.
° Learn how to use the Get Ready * Do* Done Model to turn the core curriculum and lesson/treatment plans into powerful tools to teach students executive control skills.
° Fresh approaches to help students develop automaticity for class routines and transitions.
To successfully execute, children need to be aware of task demands and set goals. Then they must access forethought and hindsight to think in an organized way and to sustain their focus on the relevant features of the task at hand. As students mature they learn how to organize their time, space, materials and develop the reasoning skills to consider multiple possible solutions to problems, recognize the "gray" in situations, and manage both expected and unexpected changes in plans, routines, rules and novel situations. Students must fluidly shift between changing task demands and carry out multiple complex steps to achieve expected goals.
Self-regulation is essential for task execution and involves: 1) any action that allows students to stop and direct themselves, 2) how this action results in a change in their behavior, and 3) how this behavior changes the likelihood of goal attainment. Termed mimetic ideational information processing(MIME), individuals mentally ‘mime the idea’ and do a ‘dry run’ of their impending actions to simulate possible future scenarios. In effect, it is mental ‘trial and error.’
