Do you find yourself hitting a brick wall in the treatment of a particular child? Do you have a new child on your caseload who that has so many deficits, you don’t know where to begin? Do you have a child for whom your usual treatment modalities don’t seem to be working? Come refill your OT toolbox with a whole new set of treatment strategies, including theoretical perspectives that will shed new light on the more complex challenges you are trying to address. You will gain the tools to understand which challenges are foundational and need to be addressed first, and how to build on the success of improvements to address the higher-level skills. “Bottom-up” and “top-down” approaches will be addressed. This one-day course is packed with information, treatment approaches, strategies, practicums and case study presentations to ensure you will leave with fresh ideas that you can implement the very next day!

Topics will include: Regulation, Ocular Motor Skill, Balance, Core strength, Auditory processing, Visual Perceptual Skill, Motor Processing, Coordination, Graphomotor Skill, Memory, Feeding and Engagement.
