Intervention Strategies for School-Based Therapy
November 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm MST
Are you challenged trying to “capture” student’s attention to be ready to learn? The “learning to learn” skills of sitting, waiting, and attending must be established for the learning process to move forward. With the increasing incident of Autistic Spectrum Disorder, ADHD/ADD, babies born with opioids exposure, and all factors, which lead to poor self- regulation, decreased attention, and depressed functional participation pushes us all to add to our skill set. Creating structure in the environment and establishing a framework of organizational processes to helps our children to better regulate, focus, participate and communicate.
This interactive workshop will include the use of visual aids, choice boards, and facilitated language boards in the framework of “structure teaching” to assist you in making real changes in your practice and with positive goal achievements for your students. This course will also include review of sensory processing difference, the principles of play within natural contexts in evaluation and treatment, and theuse of computer assisted writing (CAWs) and picture literacy. We all need to add cross-disciple skills into our “Tool Boxes.” Participants will peek into an actual therapist tool box and be able to go home and add to your tool box with use of simple everyday items.
