Meltdowns Helping Infants, Children and Adolescents Overcome Behavior Problems, Aggression and Tantrums (7 hrs.)

Taught by Stanley Greenspan, M.D.

This workshop presents basic principles for helping children with special needs (including autistic spectrum disorders) overcome meltdowns and ‘problem behaviors.’ Using audio lectures and power point, Dr. Greenspan presents a number of cases to illustrate methods and principles for handling tantrums and aggression in age groups ranging from infants to adolescents. This workshop is especially helpful for parents to address their child’s behaviors effectively and for professionals to encourage children’s calm actions, self-regulation, and creativity.

Objectives

Regulatory Sensory Processing Disorders (16 hrs.)

Taught by Rosemary White, OTR/L

Understanding the child’s sensory profile is essential for all interactions and learning. Using video tapes, this workshop examines the sensory modulation continuum of sensory regulation and response to stimuli and how it influences behavior, attention, impulse control, postural control, motor control, motor planning, and functional skills. It explores sensory, motor, and emotional patterns underlying challenges in relating and communicating.

Objectives

Children with Learning Disabilities (7 hrs.) formerly The Learning Tree

Taught by Stanley Greenspan, M.D.

This workshop combines power point and audio lectures to explore how The Learning Tree model can help with understanding and treating learning disabilities. Dr. Greenspan discusses the sensory system, executive functioning, developmental levels and academic achievement. This workshop explores, for the first time, how to improve weaknesses in the sensory processing system through identifying and using a child’s developmental capacities and relationships.

Objectives

Floortime for Older Children and Adults (5.5 hrs.) formerly A Lifespan Approach to Autism

Taught by Stanley Greenspan, M.D.

As more and more individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders are reaching adolescence and adulthood, it is vital to help them mobilize their development just as we may have done when they were children. This workshop explores different types of individuals at different levels of functioning and demonstrates and describes the best ways to advance their development. The workshop includes video examples.
