Sensory and Motor Learning (Sanghvi)

Description

Many of our children are growing up in very busy environments where they are constantly on the go. Learning environments and expectations are changing, and play and leisure activities are looking different. It is important that we provide our children with a strong foundation so that they are able to develop skills to succeed throughout life. It is also imperative to fully understand the impact of the demands we are putting on children, where the challenge begins and how to appropriately support the children with strategies and coping mechanisms. It is our job as therapists and educators to help support families and teams in this dynamic evolution to setup our children up for success and teaching them how to adapt and cope to different situations.

This interactive one-day course will look at typical development and areas to monitor. It will provide a wide variety of strategies and resources to support the child and his/her families. We will identify what play looks like and how we can change the activity a child may be interested in to provide some challenges and enable more learning. We will look at the different sensory systems and strategies to support overall regulation so that children can improve focus and concentration, engagement and intentional communication in a variety of settings. Participants will be involved in discussing how small adaptations can be made in classrooms, community settings and in the home environment to help empower the child and families. Participants will also be involved in discussing guidelines, the role of technology and interactive media and how to choose appropriate types of media for our children. After attending this course, participants will learn how prioritize the needs of the children, providing support at the foundation and building upon successes so you will be able to promote learning and growth.
