Live Virtual Workshop – Scents, Sense and Cents: Identifying, Managing and Treating SPD in Times of Fiscal Restraint
November 28 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm$130 – $255
Children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) present themselves to our practices regularly, either as a stand-alone diagnosis or as a concomitant one. This intermediate level workshop targeted to the under 12 years of age population will help you make a sound, accurate assessment that will then guide you in practical, effective and fiscally responsible treatment strategies.
Learning Objectives for Participants:
- Develop confidence in assessment and identification of sensory processing disorders vs. some other problem.
- To be able to educate others about sensory processing disorder and to empower others to be detectives and to problem-solve solutions.
- To feel informed in the decision-making process of what treatment principles you will follow (e.g. direct intervention using sensory integration therapy, use of the specific techniques, use of a sensory diet, education, etc.)
Access information will be provided closer to the date.
Certificates of completion are provided.
