On-Demand Using Innate Sensory-Motor Intervention to Help Overcome ADHD Symptoms—Rationale and Supporting Evidence

Sonia Story

Originally Recorded May 6th, 2021

CEUs: 1 contact hour (.1 AOTA CEUs)

Recording available for 30 days following your purchase

Cost: $30

Course Description

Huge numbers of children and adults live with the symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Research evidence shows that ADHD symptoms are associated with motor challenges and with sensory processing challenges. Research also shows that the brains of individuals with ADHD are less developed than the brains of individuals who do not have these symptoms.

This leads to important questions: Can innate sensory-motor activities provide increased brain development and maturity? Is there evidence showing that innate sensory-motor activities may help to reduce ADHD symptoms? Join us for this 1-hour lecture to explore the answers to these questions.

Course Description

This course will provide a valuable set of tools for every therapist’s toolbox to jumpstart systems and engage the child’s natural ability to organize through the vestibular system.

Natural Postural Engagement (NPE) assists the child in accessing his original system of organization.  It uses many techniques to organize the child for body awareness, sensory processing, symmetry, midline, range of motion, rhythm, core righting, use of limbs and oral motor efficiency.  It specifically treats above and below the hyoid in relationship to the integration of the sublingual floor, infra hyoid muscles, with the function of the lips, jaw, and tongue.

The NPE program rapidly changes the neurological function of the child when techniques are effectively carried out. It is excellent for home programing due to the simplicity and playful attributes.

On-Demand Sleep as a Contribution to Regulation

Kim Barthel

Originally Recorded on January 2, 2021

CEUs: 1 contact hour (.1 AOTA CEUs)

Recording available for 30 days following your purchase

Cost: $30 USD

Course Description

Virtually every neurological and mental health issue manifests in sleep-wake dysregulation (Garcia-Rill, 2019). Therapists who evaluate, support and enhance function are constantly questioned by their clients “How do I help myself or my child sleep better?” This lunch and learn session will focus upon the science of sleep and its impact upon regulation. 

On-Demand Visual-Perceptual-Motor Interventions for Developmental Coordination Disorders

Rhoda Erhardt

Originally Recorded on December 2, 2020

CEUs: 1 contact hour (.1 AOTA CEUs)

Recording available for 30 days following your purchase

Cost: $30 USD

Course Description

This course will focus on practical approaches for providing services to children with Developmental Coordination Disorder, which is recognized by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - Fifth edition (DSM-5). Theoretical foundations for impairments in skilled motor movements that are linked to implications for occupational performance will be explored. Participants will walk away with examples of intervention strategies including principles for individualizing therapeutic activities.

Course Description
With the rising demand due to COVID-19, an increase in the accessibility and quality of telehealth services has transformed our ways of connecting, learning and supporting clients. Many parents of children with special needs share that their online therapy sessions reach into their homes and translate therapeutic concepts directly into their daily lives. For many of us as therapists, this is what we have always hoped our therapy would achieve: to generalize the skills learned in therapy to support families every day. Telehealth is not intended to replace our valued hands-on, face-to-face assessments and interventions, but it can be and is becoming a valued adjunct. Because therapy in a virtual platform will be part of a hybrid strategy forevermore, now is the time to hone and optimize our online therapy skills.
On-Demand PolyVagal PopUp: The Neuroscience of State Behavioral Organization

Michelle Emanuel

Originally Recorded on November 6, 2020

CEUs: 1 contact hour (.1 AOTA CEUs)

Recording available for 30 days following your purchase

Cost: $30 USD

Course Description

This course covers the essentials of autonomic nervous system function as seen through the lens of the Polyvagal Theory.    Understanding the neuroscience behind dysregulation and regulation provides a strong foundation for therapists to provide helpful interventions which optimize regulation and resiliency.  State behavioral organization is the key to safe and meaningful negotiation through the sensorimotor territory of human development in the pre-crawling period.

Kim Barthel

Originally Recorded on August 12, 19, 26, September 3, 2020 

CEUs: 6 hours (.6 AOTA CEUs)

Recording available for 30 days following your purchase

Cost: $215

Course Description
The situation we are experiencing with COVID-19 is considered a collective trauma. Within this collective experience, emotional and behavioral responses are as varied as the number of humans on the planet. It is affecting us all, how we manage our own feelings and how we relate to one another. Adding to the ongoing uncertainty of issues related to the pandemic is a heightened awareness of racial injustice, political division and for many of us, an uncertain future. This unique series of four live webinars will address the dynamics of heightened emotion, allowing teachers and school-based practitioners to explore trauma-sensitive practice in real-time - bringing the theory into action. Appreciating the potential impacts of both early developmental trauma and current unpredictable events upon teaching and learning offers practitioners deeper insight and compassionate curiosity about how to support our students returning to school in the fall.
