Praxis is much more than coordination. It influences how we understand, think about and organize information. Poor praxis affects every aspect of academics and executive functioning. Learn how to engage your students in the praxis processes to increase these abilities and make your present treatments more effective and occupation based. Also learn how to measure any treatment in a valid and easy way to show efficacy.
