This course is an on-demand offering. It is a TWO HOUR course. Handouts provided! A certificate of attendance for NBCOT renewal will be provided after the completion of a post-test.
For years, we have been asking if a child’s behavior is the result of a sensory processing disorder or a behavioral issue. The answers seem quite complicated but knowing how to look at a situation and analyze it can help answer the question.
Have you ever wondered if children in your own clinic were experiencing a sensory meltdown or behavioral issue? This course will help!
Occupational therapists are uniquely positioned to help answer this question and make recommendations to change the lives of children and their families. This course will assist therapists in helping teachers, parents, and others to determine the ‘why’ behind behaviors and suggest immediate changes to help children.
With an emphasis on OTPF performance factors (AOTA, 2021), you’ll learn helpful tips, visuals, and strategies you can use immediately to help.
Who can attend? OTs, COTAs, PTs, PTAs, teachers, therapists, social workers, counselors, parents, and anyone who works with children who have special needs.
- You will learn that behavior and anxiety are forms of communication when a child is dysregulated.
- You will more clearly understand and learn strategies to address ‘problem’ behaviors such as: fidgeting, transitions, and temper outbursts.
- You will identify fun and functional sensory-motor experiences to build new sensory pathways and improve comfort for learning in all settings.
INSTRUCTIONS: The course handouts are in a downloadable PDF file. The link to download the handouts will be valid for two days only, however, the course may be completed when it’s convenient for you.
