A few years ago, we held a sensory seminar series at a local winery. It was very fun and informative. A highlight of the year was Dr. Lucy Jane Miller coming out and presenting to the group! We received great feedback, and many people have requested that we offer these seminars again. In an effort to make these resources accessible to more people, we decided to move the seminars to an online platform.
With a growing community of therapists and families traveling to our clinic to receive support and training, we are very excited to provide this FREE ONLINE resource for you!
As we inaugurate our 2019-2020 education series, we look forward to learning and growing together with you. We hope that this series will build and strengthen connections among professionals, families, and community members in our mutual efforts to help our unique and amazing children. We are also excited to connect wonderful people with information and ideas that will help them, their children, families and students GROW and THRIVE.
The second Thursday of the month we will provide an evidence-based practice discussion related to the topic of the month's presentation. This discussion group is intended for pediatric therapists and professionals from all disciplines who work with children with special needs. During this hour-long facilitated discussion, we will to dive deeper into research, resources, and reflection around the subject. These discussions include rich discussion on clinical reasoning and research, as well as self-reflection. We will provide suggested reading materials for each seminar from a variety of resources including books and research articles. Please come with your thoughts, questions, and experiences to contribute, or even just to listen and absorb. Let’s learn and build our skills together!
On the fourth Thursday of each month, we are pleased to offer an online support group just for parents of children with special needs. During these facilitated discussion groups we will take a deeper dive into the topic of the month's presentation. Parents are encouraged to bring your questions and real life situations for discussion. You are also welcome to come and just absorb. During this hour, we aim to find hope in the midst of challenge. In a world filled with rushing and judgement, we will work together to create a community of encouragement, love, and grace.
When you sign up for a class or discussion group, you will be sent a direct link to the online meeting room. All you have to do is log in, no matter where you are or how your month has gone. We are here for you, whether you can't find a babysitter or you are a therapist working alone and need refreshing and connection. We look forward to learning with you!
