    • From sensory exposure/desensitization to sensory safety
    • From cognitive therapy to interoception-based work

  • Many practical emotion regulation strategies that are modern and compassionate
  • The approach is applicable to learners of a variety of ages, backgrounds, diagnoses & learning styles

Course Description:

Typically, most fields evolve and adapt as people learn from new evidence and lived experiences. The neurodiversity field is no different—we’ve come a long way, but we all have a responsibility to continue to evolve and adapt to keep pace with the latest evidence and neurodivergent experience. This course will discuss common supports used to help neurodivergents thrive and encourage us all to serve in ways that are in line with the most current science and neurodivergent voice.

Using modern supports are critical, however it can be overwhelming to keep pace with emerging research and neurodivergent voice. And then to know how to translate this information into practical application can be confusing. This live online course will provide practical solutions and strategies will be shared to help us keep pace within several key areas including moving:

  • From Trauma-blind to trauma-informed
  • From compliance-driven to regulation-driven
  • From sensory exposure/desensitization to sensory safety
  • From cognitive therapy to interoception-based work
  • From deficit-focused to strength-based
  • From theory of mind to theory of OWN mind

If you are ready to expand your knowledge and nurture emotion regulation in the learners you serve, register today. We look forward to seeing you in the course!

Who this course is for:

  • You are serving learners of any age that are neurodivergent.
  • You are an Occupational Therapy Practitioner, Educator, Mental Health Provider, Speech and Language Pathologist, Behaviorist, or Caregiver who wants to help learners be better understood and supported.
  • You want to remain on the cutting edge of practice and serve in ways that are in line with the most current science and neurodivergent voice
  • You want to feel empowered with information you can use to create buy-in for a modern approach to supporting neurodivergent learners.

Keeping pace in an ever-changing field can be extremely overwhelming. I don’t have enough time to read research and keep up on the latest trends. This course is an awesome mix of evidence, lived experience & practical info. I knew there was a better way, but now I know exactly what I need to do to make a few small shifts. I can’t wait to start using what I learned. Thank you!!!!
