Early Intervention Methods: Sensory Strategies

with Jennifer Rosinia, Ph.D.

Thursday, September 4, 2014 | 9 a.m. - Noon

Approved by Illinois Early Intervention Training Program

Young children learn in a sensory manner-- that is, through their senses. This workshop provides professionals with an exploration of intervention strategies through a sensory lens.

Professionals will undertake an overview of sensory processing, as well as the impact of sensory processing on children's daily routines. Specific sensory strategies that will help a baby reach a calm, alert state, or a toddlers reach a state of self-control, is the primary strategic focus of this workshop. No matter how one provides early intervention services, these sensory strategies will enhance delivery methods.

Early Intervention Methods: Positioning for Optimal Performance

with Jennifer Rosinia, Ph.D.

Thursday, September 11, 2014 | 9 a.m. - Noon

Approved by Illinois Early Intervention Training Program

The quality of work performed by any individual is directly correlated to the physical position in which the individual finds themselves-- and this maxim applies to very young children, as well.

This workshop begins with a brief overview of contemporary positioning practices having a dramatic influence on children's early development. When a young child experiences movement challenges due to a diagnosis or developmental delay, their ability to attain or sustain optimal positioning is compromised. Participants in this workshop will be introduced to such concepts as tone, trunk support, and postural security. Most importantly, participants will learn proper positioning techniques to use immediately in their practice with the children they serve, in order to foster optimal participation in relationships and developmental activities.

This is the final session in Erikson’s three-part series, Early Intervention Methods. Discover the other sessions here.
