Practical Sense in SI
Part 3
"The Missing Pieces"

An intermediate to advanced level 2-day conference designed for experienced therapists to increase their ability to practically implement sensory strategies into their everyday treatment of the higher-functioning/subtle sensory processing dysfunction.  Many therapists working with these clients are making minimal gains solely because these dysfunctions go undetected and are not treated effectively. Learn PRACTICAL, hands-on, specific techniques focusing on the recognition and treatment of sensory discrimination disorders.  These strategies will improve skill acquisition and increase the rate of progress, resulting in notable functional outcomes in your treatment session.

A must do conference for the clinician working with Developmental Delays, Learning Disabilities, motor planning deficits, sequencing and organization deficits and executive function dysfunctions.

 

Who Should Attend?

Experienced Occupational and Physical Therapists who are interested in learning PRACTICAL, hands-on, specific techniques focusing on the recognition and treatment of more subtle, higher functioning clients with sensory processing disorders.

When implementing your techniques, we initially dealt with resistance and skepticism, however we are now seeing great success using your protocols. It is amazing! We have only started with a few students and the amount of improvement related to attention, skill-related function, calming etc. has been dramatic.
