DESCRIPTION
We combined Tools for Infants and Tools for Tots into a one-day workshop for early interventionists! Help is on the way for those who either have, or are working with infants, toddlers and preschoolers. This seminar is designed to offer practical sensory-based strategies to improve your child’s ability to function in natural environments during daily routines. Tools for Infants and Tools for Tots offer a variety of sensory safe tools which enrich sensory experiences for young children whose nervous systems are challenged (e.g. sensory processing disorder, autism spectrum disorder or other developmental disorders). However, using these strategies will encourage optimal development in all young children, even those who are neuro-typical. Use these sensory safe tools in naturally occurring daily routines in your child’s home, child care center, early intervention program or preschool. When the question is asked, “Is it sensory or behavior?” reframe it by asking, “Are there sensory issues driving the behavior?” Topics include Fussy Firecrackers, Nighty Night, Busy Bees, and more! Updates in the latest research on sensory integration and sensory processing will be discussed. Characteristics of the different types of sensory processing disorder will be identified. Treatment videos and case studies will be shared. Dress comfortably to personally experience how movement can affect learning! Fee includes both the Tools for Infants and Tools for Tots books.
