Description
SESSION A:
The Role of School Therapists in Improving Mental Health and Reducing School Aggression
Occupational, physical, and speech/language therapists offer unique contributions to improve student attention and reduce aggression in school. Behavior management skills are crucial for enabling students to achieve maximum benefit from their individual, group or embedded therapy sessions. This fun, interactive workshop will teach you strategies that improve cooperation and behavior during individual and group therapy sessions, as well as address IEP goals related to improving classroom attention and reducing verbal and physical aggression.
SESSION B:
Strategies to Reduce Problematic Reflexes and Habits, and Improve Postural Stability and Bilateral Coordination for Enhanced School Functioning
While many therapists believe that addressing problematic reflexes, postural stability and bilateral coordination improve learning and behavior, the use of these interventions is criticized for lacking adequate research support. This workshop will focus on evidence- based strategies that can be used to improve school learning and functional behavior while simultaneously addressing dysfunctional habits related to primitive reflexes, postural stability, and/or bilateral coordination.
