“The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance – it is the illusion of knowledge.”
Daniel J. Boorstin (1914 – 2004)
Workshops, training, professional development topics can be customized to meet the needs of your particular group or can focus on a particular student. The following is a list of presentations that are possible;
- Understanding Behavior from a Sensation Point of View
A huge number of behaviors seen in children with learning differences occur as a result of their disordered sensory system. This presentation will explain over and under arousal in all the sensory systems, provide a sensory simulation experience, and offer strategies to help students get to their “just right” level of alertness.
- Sensory Processing – Classroom Presentation
This presentation includes sensory processing information and may also include diagnosis specific information for a child’s peer group. It includes a sensory simulation activity and/or time for the children to brainstorm how they can support the identified child.
- “WE” Co-regulation to “ME” Self-regulation
This presentation focuses on caregivers, helping them to understand how critical their self-regulation is to the development of self-regulation in children they work with or parent. We discuss brain science behind fight/flight/freeze and how we need human connection. We provide a variety of strategies proven to support self-regulation and provide opportunities to practice these strategies.
