Executive Functioning skills are becoming a big "buzz" word of today. Executive Functioning goes beyond intelligence and speaks to the ability to organize, to write what you are thinking, to adhere to time-lines, and to be disciplined in study methods.
Sensory processing is the foundation on which skills are built in the early developmental years. Executive functioning is the skill set needed to see the child through her school career and her higher learning.
Therapists working in educational and clinical settings will find this course very practical in approach, in addition to understanding in more depth the contribution we are making in the child's occupation as a student and organized adult.
This course will provide the therapist with the building blocks and tools necessary to assess, intervene and support clients. Use these treatment strategies the very next day!
