for a course that will address the treatment of approaches
that produce the most progress in the shortest amount of
time? Do you want to know how to combine treatment strategies
in order to make each approach more effective? This course
provides an overview of the "power tools" strategies
most effective for the child with modulation, postural, motor
and/or learning and behavioral problems. Join us and discover
how the integration of a variety of strategies result in
significant, measurable changes that are quick and cost effective.
Treatment approaches will include: new perspectives on SI
theory and practice, CranioSacral Therapy applications, metabolic
considerations, modulation strategies: ie intensity concepts
for sensory diet, therapeutic uses of music, rhythm and suck/swallow/breathe
While some of the techniques discussed can be immediately
put to use, prior experience with traditional sensory integration
principles and practice will make application of these advanced
approaches more meaningful and the complex nature of integrating
them with current practice more successful. Basic sensory
integration principles will not be covered in this course.
OTs, PTs and SLPs
This course is offered for 1.4 AOTA CEUs
Participants will be able to:
1. Describe at least 3 of the presented approaches that
can be integrated into treatment.
2. Describe how these approaches interact and/or support
each other in comprehensive treatment of persons with sensory
processing, modulation, motor, learning or autism spectrum
3. Demonstrate powerful treatment strategies for 3 or more
of the approaches discussed.
4. Identify personal learning options that will enhance
professional skills toward more efficient/effective treatment.

"Excellent workshop. Very applicable and research based."
"Neuro foundation was thorough and well explained.
Great handouts for neuro & OT. Postural integrity well
presented. I appreciate the emphasis on relationship between
neuroscience and practical OT."
examples, clear, organized presentation...entertaining
speakers. Held my interest for the duration. I will sign
up for your other courses!"
the how of the CNS allows for better activity choice/analysis
for the children I treat."
suggestions/ideas. Covered many areas - can apply specifics
to entire caseload at some point. Came away with a greater
understanding and good neurological reasoning to explain."
most informative and enjoyable course I have taken in
a long time! Good ideas for practical applications."
of the treatment options can be implemented. There has
been a connection made between science and intervention."
