Sensory Processing Training and Support Group Winter 2012 Series Children’s Therapy Network offers a monthly training and support opportunity for parents and caregivers. Trainings will cover the basics for families who are just learning the language as well as more specific information for families who are looking to add to their current knowledge base. Participants will gain an understanding of sensory processing principles, strategies to use with their child and ways to best advocate for their child. The training is limited to 15 participants and time will be divided between presentation and a question and answer session in order to give individualized strategies.
Music and Movement Group- Incorporating Sensory Regulation Principles Are you looking for an opportunity for your child with sensory needs to participate successfully in a group class setting? This fun group experience is based on the music and movement curriculum developed by Musikgarten (www.musikgarten.org). Musikgarten’s proven curriculum provides children with developmentally appropriate activities using music to awaken movement, language and social development. The class will be co-taught by an occupational therapist and a speech therapist, both of whom are experienced with the Musikgarten curriculum. The curriculum will be adapted to support individual children’s specific sensory needs, such as motor planning concerns or sensory defensiveness. The main goal of the group during each session is to ensure that the child is both engaged in the music process, as well as engaged with others in the group: their parents and their peers.
