**CHANGE IN LOCATION**: 1914 Bay Ave, Brookly, New York off East 19th St and Ave M, (triangle between ave M and east 19th St. And ocean ave. Middle of the block)
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.
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.’
This workshop is designed to provide beginning, intermediate, and advanced therapists a broader background about the neurophysiological and neurobehavioral expressions of neuromodulation seen in everyday clinical practice
Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
3 Day Course
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.
This presentation is designed to help participants understand the importance of sensory processing and how dysfunction can affect a child in all areas of development. Alex offers practical ideas using minimal equipment to create powerful sensory diets that can be readily implemented in the home or school environment. Hands-on interventions to support breath, coordination, timing, balance and strength will be presented. Modifications, adaptations and grading of activities will be addressed to support best possible outcomes. Ideas for better engagement of the child will be addressed as well as discussion of ways to facilitate ‘play’ for a stronger therapist-child relationship. This dynamic workshop will support participants through hands-on learning as they experience the activities in their own bodies. Lastly, Alex will provide tools for therapists to create their own equipment (DIY equipment) at a minimal cost.
Participants will be able to:
1. Describe sensory integration and sensory modulation and the role they play in learning, behavior, and development.
2. Understand the importance of vestibular, proprioceptive and tactile integration as it relates to postural development, balance and physical development.
3. Participate in and generate ideas and activities that support sensory development
4. List sensory motor interventions that children can readily take back into the classroom
5. Create effective sensory diets using minimal equipment that can be implemented in school and home environments.
6. Develop creative opportunities to facilitate agility, motor control, balance and upper/lower extremity coordination through play.
7. Identify ways to grade activities up/down to facilitate progress.
Each participant will be receiving a tote bag full of s'cool moves posters to start using the very next day!
· Provide a school culture that supports children who learn differently, need sensory support, or struggle keeping up with their peers
· Teach self regulation techniques through various sensory motor activities in order to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system with the goal of decreasing stress and anxiety and giving students the appropriate sensory input to facilitate improved motor output and learning.
· Integrate essential developmental skills with academic curricula;
· Learn techniques to improve student's overall coordination, motor planning skills, body awareness, and visual tracking skills.
· Integrate essential developmental skills with academic curricula;
· Understand and explain how movement and developmental skills impact academic success;
· Integrate occupational and physical therapy theory and techniques where appropriate into S’cool Moves routines
