School-based allied health professionals who work with kids (and others!) who have trouble with self-controlling behaviors may be interested in a new workshop with Leah Kuypers on November 29th in Rockford, Illinois.
PRNewswire is reporting that the self-regulation training is geared toward occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, psychologists, special educators, speech-language pathologists, speech-language pathology assistants, and teachers.
“The Zones of Regulation® presentation provides participants with hands-on knowledge on the nature of self-regulation and strategies for improving self-regulation and emotional control in individuals of all ages. The presentation addresses topics such as: the brain’s involvement, typical development, sensory processing, emotional regulation, and executive functioning.
“Audience participants will learn an explicit, stair-stepped method and tools to guide students in utilizing The Zones framework across situations and environments to regulate sensory needs, impulses, and emotional states in response to social demands.”
According to her bio, “Kuypers has practiced as an OT/autism specialist in school and clinical settings, specializing in self-regulation and social learning, and has worked with students of all ages and challenges, including anxiety, ADHD, and ASD. Leah created The Zones of Regulation, a framework designed to teach self-regulation, and is author of the book by the same name (2011, Social Thinking Publishing).”
