September 25 – 27, 2018 – Collaborating Clinicians


This three-day workshop is designed for professionals who desire to work collaboratively in supporting children with special needs. 

As a therapist, educator, or caregiver, selecting an appropriate intervention approach for each individual client is often challenging. Professionals can be inundated with a multitude of options, making it difficult to discern which approaches or even disciplines are optimum for each case. 

This workshop re-frames intervention; it illuminates the reality that the best possible care anyone can receive is often trans-disciplinary, integrated, practical and sustainable. 

The content of the workshop combines sensory processing intervention, Neuro-Developmental Treatment, understanding attachment and strategies for enhancing communication. 

The workshop will be a blend of lecture, demos, videos and clinical problem-solving discussions. While participants will expand their knowledge of specific approaches and skills in supporting clients/students, the crux of this workshop is in pulling it all together. 


  1. Appreciate and establish a connection to the transdisciplinary model of intervention for children with special needs, while maintaining a clinical identity and professional boundary. 
  2. Recognize arousal states and design effective strategies for learning, communication, relationship and self-regulation. 
  3. Understand the inter-connectedness between posture and movement and emotional regulation and learning. 
  4. Appreciate the need for appropriate sensory interventions to improve posture and movement in functional and academic settings. 
  5. Understand the impact of attachment and co-regulation upon arousal, language development, and executive functions. 
  6. Understand that behaviour (in a relational context) is communication and in supporting others it’s not only what we do but how we do it that matters
