Becoming a Behavioral Detective

This one day workshop is designed for speech/language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, social workers and special educators who work collaboratively towards the enhancement of a child’s learning, organized behavior, communication, interaction, joint attention, and modulation using sensory processing intervention. Explore the neurobiology of sensory processing intervention, assessment procedures and the art of therapy for children with a variety of neurological, behavioral, mental health and communication challenges. Through lecture, videotape analysis, treatment demonstration and practical sessions, clinicians will leave the workshop energized to problem solve client intervention in a new way!
