Following on from an extremely well received afternoon session at our Annual Therapies in the School Conference in 2017, Jocelynn B. Wallach, MS, OTR/L has developed a new 2 day course.
We are excited to announce, coming in December:
Practical and Effective Strategies to Improve
Self-Regulation and Executive Functioning Skills
In Children with SPD, ASD, EF Dysfunction, Anxiety and Learning Difficulties
Do you have students who have difficulty sitting still, initiating tasks, working through assignments to completion, or attending to the details of their work? Do they have difficulty applying active listening skills and memory strategies to support their learning and academic performance?
This course will teach participant tools and effective strategies that address these challenges directly. Given the demands of the Common Core Standards for independent work habits, sustained attention and motor output, students have an increased need to develop selfregulation and executive function skills in order to progress successfully through grade level curriculum. Participants will learn successful methods to facilitate the development of self-regulation, attention, organization and memory as well as environmental accommodations and modifications
Jocelynn has worked in a variety of settings developing pediatric occupational therapy departments for the Brockton Visiting Nurses Association, MA, Braintree Rehabilitation Hospital, MA and the New England Sinai Hospital, MA. She taught at Boston University, The Education Cooperative, Westwood Public Schools, MA and lectured nationwide on sensory processing and executive functioning. For the past 20 years she has worked in the Westwood Public Schools and maintained her private practice “Capable Hands and Associates”.
Dates currently scheduled for this NEW course:
December 1-2, 2018 – Livingston, NJ
March 30-31, 2019 – Hamden, CT
April 12-13, 2019 – Plantation, FL
October 12-13, 2019 – Aurora, IL
