I appreciate the way Maude presents her courses, in a concise and precise way, combining research and evidence-based approaches. I feel supported and I always finish the classes with a lot of new ideas and food for thought.

Course Description

Interoception has become quite the “buzzword” today as more research emerges with regards to its connection to the gut, the insula and the brain. This workshop will cover pertinent research from A.D. Craig and the Polyvagal Theory of Dr. S. Porges. We will bring all the science together to make it practical for use in everyday situations, especially as regards assessment and intervention from an OT perspective.

This workshop will also include noted concepts on Mindfulness practice and the use of “quieting the mind” to influence body awareness, praxis and occupational function.

Whether you are coming from a social-emotional perspective or postural-praxis perspective, this “theory-to-practice” workshop will give you new tools in getting to the “why” behind your clients’ challenges and performing effective assessment and intervention.


Maude Le Roux is an occupational therapist with an extensive following of professionals across the globe. She completed the SIPT training in 2002 and Sensory Integration forms the foundation from which she continues to develop different tracks of assessment and intervention. Maude is certified in multiple different techniques that she applies uniquely through her Developmental Pathways Model (DPM). She completed a 15-hour course on the Polyvagal Theory through Deb Dana as well as included Kelly Mahler’s work in her practice for the past 4 years.

Her requirement for practice is a warm, embracing atmosphere operated through clinical expertise and professionalism that will provide quality of care to all entering her practice.
