This webinar is designed to address some of the main underlying components of self-regulation, focus and attention.
It is geared towards pediatric therapists in trying to improve children’s ability to reach their therapy goals with improved self-regulation protocols, sensory treatment ideas and techniques as well as some of the primitive reflexes that affect regulation of the nervous system.
Evidenced-based theory will be provided as well as an explanation of the sensory systems involved and calming techniques to decrease sympathetic nervous system response.
Specific activities that utilize readily available objects in the home will be demonstrated to improve telehealth therapy sessions as well as direct care treatment ideas for hands-on care.
Therapists will walk away with more background knowledge of both the sensory and reflex systems that affect our focus and attention as well as practical techniques and activities to implement immediately into their practice.
