Event description

Description

Registration begins at 8:30am

Presentation is from 9:00am to 3:00pm with an hour lunch break on your own

Presentation: "Connecting Self-Regulation, Sensory Processing, Executive Skills and Responsive Teaching. (The Keys to Improving Focus, Attention and Sensory Processing)"

Presenter: Tere Bowen-Irish OTR

Students with and without special needs have coping skills that can vary according to personality, extenuating circumstances, environmental factors and other issues that may influence their abilities. We strive to meet the treatment needs but hope that the individual will adapt to their challenges in fulfilling their roles optimally. How can we help them learn and apply strategies to help with self-regulation, coping day to day and being active participants in the classroom and school settings? Isn’t habituation really the key? Participants will review techniques and a variety of methods to address meeting children in the present. We will experiment with techniques from movement to mindfulness, analyzing how we can apply these research based ideas in all aspects of their day. Recognizing when to teach someone how to soothe themselves, relax, and reduce stress to improve their ability to fulfill their roles as a learner is just the beginning. Let’s bring back the idea of activity based, co-active interventions to enhance student performance.
