“How Does Your Engine Run?®” The Alert Program® Online Course

Albuquerque - United StatesJun-21-201612:01 am

“If your body is like a car engine, sometimes it runs on high, sometimes it runs on low, and sometimes it runs just right.” When teachers, parents, or therapists use these simple words with children to begin the Alert Program®, they support self-regulation, self-esteem, and self-monitoring skills. Come to one of our trainings (and/or use our books, songs, and games) to learn how easy it is to help children keep their engines running just right at home or school. The Alert Program® has been adapted for all ages and all types of disabilities, including autism. Typically those children with high functioning autism or Asperger’s Syndrome enjoy using the engine analogy or choose their own special area of interest such as favorite animals or dinosaurs or even Winnie the Pooh characters to describe how alert they feel. If children are developmentally younger than the age of eight, are non-verbal, or have other learning challenges where “talking about engines” would be too abstract, the adults (parents, teachers, and other caregivers) learn what they can do to set children up for success, even if the child does not participate in labeling their engine level. Through the Alert Program®, adults learn how they can support sensory diets and be “detectives” in determining what best meets children’s needs for optimal functioning. This training offers practical, low-budget activities you can use immediately in homes, classrooms, or therapy sessions. Join the countless professionals and parents world-wide who help children succeed through the Alert Program’s step-by-step approach. You’ll find out why thousands have said, “this is one of the best workshops I’ve ever attended.”
