Do you gravitate toward pull-out therapy, or do you prefer to “push-in” to the classroom?

Did you know that push-in services:

1. Are preferred by districts?

2. Utilize a collaborative approach?

3. Can even be more effective when done properly?

Using videos and case studies, participants will learn unique treatment techniques to address strength, endurance, and coordination for a variety of populations from elementary through high school age. We will also develop the ability to combine educational concepts with motor activities. Functional analysis, treatment progression, treatment dosage, discharge planning and timing, teacher/staff carryover and buy-in will also be addressed.

In addition to examining push-in services from many angles, we will also provide you with over 100 CREATIVE activities and resources that can be used in a variety of settings.
20-page take-away Tool Kit with activities will also be provided.
