WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPONSOR ONE OF OUR WORKSHOPS?

  1. 1. WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPONSOR ONE OF OUR WORKSHOPS? Contact www.STARServicesINC@aol.com Is It Sensory or Is It Behavior? Children often demonstrate confusing and challenging behaviors. Prior to implementing intervention strategies it is important to understand the issues that contribute to difficult behaviors. Many behaviors result from the child‘s effort to meet a specific need, as a response to environmental demands and stimuli, or as a learned behavior. Therapists must be able to understand these behaviors; identify the underlying cause; develop intervention strategies to alter the behaviors; remediate the underlying problems, and implement these programs in multiple environments. One Day: Level 1-This workshop is designed for occupational, physical and speech therapists, psychologists, other professionals and parents.  Speakers guide participants through the Chaos that is Behavior: the underlying cause, and the factors that keep the behaviors alive.  Introduce participants to a concrete methodology to guide clinical observations.  Begin to analyze why children behave the way they do and sort out sensory-based problems from other causes.  Introduce participants to the common pitfalls that keep negative behaviors alive.  Introduce positive behavioral strategies to promote desirable behaviors. Two Day: Level 1 –  This workshop will include the information in the One Day Level 1 workshop.  A variety of teaching methods are utilized to teach participants how to analyze why children behave the way they do; sort out sensory-based problems from other causes, and design intervention strategies to address the underlying problems.  Sensory-based behaviors will be presented in detail with specific methodology to tease out specific underlying sensory disorder and focused intervention strategies.  The participants will begin to untangle sensory behaviors from learned behaviors.  A concrete methodology will be provided to guide the process and objectify clinical observations.  Applicable to all school and clinic environments. Three Day: Level 2- Advanced Problem Solving  Includes advanced problem solving and intervention strategies. Includes both level 1 and 2 training.  A variety of teaching methods are utilized to teach participants to identify and correct common pitfalls that promote negative behaviors.  Utilizing an integrated approach participants will learn positive behavioral and sensory strategies to alter and modify behaviors.  Applicable to all school and clinic settings. Autism and Pervasive Developmental Delay: Intervention
  2. 2. Strategies Two Day: This workshop is designed for occupational, physical, speech pathologists, other professionals and parents.  The speakers skillfully use a layering system to lead participants to a deep understanding of the complex inter-relationship between sensory integrative, communicative, behavioral, and neuro-developmental problems seen in individuals with autism spectrum disorder and pervasive developmental delays.  Participants develop the skills of problem identification and program planning as they pertain to their work setting.  Specific intervention strategies will clearly be identified for use at school, home and clinic to improve the functional performance of children with sensory modulation, tactile discrimination, and motor planning disorders. One Day:  Introduction to Autism and Pervasive Developmental Delay - This can be tailored to the needs of specific groups: parents, teachers, paraprofessionals, and school therapists. Other:  School or clinic based consultations can also be arranged in conjunction with the above workshops or separately.  Three day workshops are also available, and will be customized to the needs of the sponsor. Integrating NDT and SI: Intervention Strategies A Hands-on Approach to Maximize Your Effectiveness. These workshops are designed for occupational, physical, and speech pathologists. They provide hands-on experience and practical applications to help break down the barriers between NDT and SI. Learn how to combine techniques to achieve results. While case studies and audiovisuals encompass pediatrics, adult therapists have found this workshop very helpful. These hands-on workshops will help to expand your treatment options to obtain effective functional results through a holistic, integrated NDT/SI treatment approach! These dynamic treatment courses address strategies for children with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), sensory integrative disorders, learning disabilities, developmental delays, and a variety of neurological impairments including cerebral palsy. Three day:  This workshop provides in-depth principles of sensory integration and neuro- developmental treatment and provides a solid foundation for utilizing a dynamic, focused and integrated approach for evaluating and treating children with sensory and neurological problems.  An integrated evaluation system is presented to give participants concrete methodologies for identifying neurological and sensory problems hindering function.  Participants learn how to integrate NDT and SI treatments for results-oriented interventions for a variety of patient populations.  Videos, case studies, and facilitation labs using a variety of equipment will help you identify clients’ base problems and then focus on dynamic, results-oriented treatment strategies.  Participants get extensive hands-on opportunities to learn new sensory and
