TBDSeattle, USA Visit the Venue to read more
This intensive lab course will help you link neuroscience to your clinical practice with a focus on evidence based interventions to improve measurable outcomes for adults and children with neurological challenges. It teaches you how to use tools to support the brains ability to rewire itself rather than retraining or relearning a specific skill. This course draws on the expansive brain-behavioral sciences to provide a framework for assessment, priority setting, prognosis and intervention for clients in any treatment setting from those with acute issues such as medically fragile diagnoses, behavioral issues, to those with chronic issues in any treatment setting.
At the conclusion of this course, the participant will be able to:
Describe the neurobiology of therapeutic relationship and attachment as a healing force in therapy.
Identify and describe the stress response as an antagonist to healing.
Analyze the role of arousal as the driving force for attention, learning and rehabilitation.
Apply a skill set of "tools" for building the brain as an aspect of neuro-rehabilitation.
Demonstrate a preliminary understanding of the brain/body self-healing mechanisms and the implementation of complementary healing techniques.

Each year, usually in November, our popular annual conference “Therapies in the School” attracts key decision makers from all over the U.S. and Canada and has sold out early.
The pre- conference attracts approximately 300 special educators, teachers, psychologists and school based therapists to learn a program “The Zones of Regulation”, which provides strategies to teach students to become more aware of and independent in controlling their emotions and impulses.
The “Therapies in the School” annual conference continues the learning with another 300 school based therapists (OT, PT and SLP). The course content focuses on aligning motor needs with educational needs, and how to improve executive function in children who are receiving therapy services in the school setting. Strategies to reduce anxiety and problem behaviors in the classroom, as well as the latest advances in technology to address cognitive deficits and executive skills, are discussed.
There is no better way to reach school based personnel than to showcase your relevant products and services at this popular event.
We are now pleased to offer multiple levels of sponsorship opportunities.
