Spectrums, Disorders, and Real Life with Children!
A Sensory Perspective

A Half-Day Workshop for Parents, Caregivers, Teachers, Administrators, Owners, and Directors

Online registration will not available for this training in Bellevue until the next date has been scheduled. Please contact us at info@simplicitylearning.org with any questions you have about specific workshops, including requests to host trainings at your center or school.

You are invited to Simplicity Learning for a heartfelt discussion about our children's and students' quirks, difficulties, and gifts! This workshop is intended for parents, caregivers, teachers, administrators, and others who care for children and families. Working with current research and resources, this workshop demystifies some of the confusions that currently exist between viewing children’s behaviors through the lens of psychiatric disorders versus the many environmental factors that contribute today to stress and overwhelm. We will particularly focus on simple changes in lifestyle and environment that go beyond labels and medication to support sensory integration and processing. We will look at attachment relationships, stress, emotional control, parenting, sleep, accommodations in the classroom, and many other environmental factors. Participants will gain an understanding of differing viewpoints regarding the current panoply: ADD, ADHD, ASD, ODD, OCD, SPD, and APD. Participants will discover similarities and differences between children who exhibit overly-sensitive and under-sensitive miens, including some of the more common misinterpretations of these behaviors. Tools useful in the classroom and at home will be presented as well.
