Knowing the underlying brain connections will help you better select and develop appropriate interventions for challenging behaviours, such as hyper-activity, hypo-activity, aggressiveness, self-stimulatory and inattentiveness.
You will walk away with neurologically tailored sensory strategies, cutting-edge treatment techniques, and sensory equipment strategies, including, mindfulness, social skill programs, music and movement, and respiratory-based techniques.
On day one, you will learn the underlying neurological components to connect the brain to clinical practice through:
The second day, you will learn how to analyze and apply treatment techniques, such as:
