Course Description:This interactive workshop provides the learner with the skills to address Sensory Modulation Disorders with an array of multi-sensory tools and techniques that can be immediately implemented in the classroom. The strategies are rooted in the theoretical framework developed by renowned author and pediatric researcher Dr. Lucy Jane Miller. Author and workshop presenter, Dr. Doreit S. Bialer will review the principles outlined in their book “No Longer a SECRET”and offer innovative, cost-effective and easy to use techniques based on sensory and neuro-developmental frames of references that work well in school settings.
The labs are designed to help participants learn to create, adapt and implement the suggested tools. Demonstrations and participant involvement will be used to facilitate learning.Attendees will gain knowledge of the specific guidelines for intervening with different modulation challenges, gain the necessary skills and be ready to return to the classroom with a tool box of ideas.
