The workshop will present current evidence related to the childhood "obesity epidemic" and how it affects the overall development of all children. A review of typical gross motor development from infancy through age 8 will be offered. Participants will be given information that will allow them to identify potential motor difficulties exhibited by the children they serve, strategies for including children with movement disorders in adequate physical activity along with their typically-developing peers and possibilities for collaboration with families and schools on physical activity programs. Attendees will be given the opportunity to participate in the application of yoga and Pilates-style exercises to promote fitness, alertness and learning in children. A model for using these exercises as part of an early childhood classroom routine will be shared.
This presentation will help clarify how occupational and physical therapy services are appropriately used to support Individualized Educational Plans. A model of decision-making that parallels the organization of the IEP document will be discussed.
Current billing and documentation rules and standards will be discussed. Examples of properly completed billing and documentation forms will be offered. A district-specific "question and answer" section will be developed as needed.
Learn more about how to guide staff through challenging times, whether they are financial constraints, policy changes, or other types of change occurring in your district. We will explore the differences between leadership and management and identify when each is appropriate to use depending upon the situation. Information will include past and current experience of successful business leaders and managers. This presentation can be customized for your particular needs.
Learn how to use the IEP process to:
•Collaboratively discuss a child's current level of functional performance in all school routines
•Identify and prioritize a child's academic and functional expectations
•Determine the annual educational program and goal plan that is child-specific, not discipline specific
•Identify supports and services needed to achieve annual goals, including best service delivery options
You will also learn how to critically evaluate current IEP documents for concepts related to the above Objectives, and determine the next steps in moving toward more collaborative IEP development.
