Online Alert Program Fall Course Sept 27 - Oct 27, 2016

ALBUQUERQUE, NM - United StatesSep-27-201608:00 am

We are so proud to announce that we converted our two-day Alert Program training to an online course. It's a one-of-a-kind online learning experience where you'll stay alert and focused while having fun! If you've always wanted to attend an Alert Program "live" training (or you want a refresher with updates and lots of new info), it's now available as an amazingly high quality, HD video module format with experiential learning. "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 therapists, teachers, or parents use these simple words to begin the Alert Program, they enter an exciting adventure with children. The journey unfolds easily with the program's clearly defined steps for teaching self-regulation awareness. The Alert Program assists children who have learning disabilities and attention problems (as well as typical children) to understand the basic theory of sensory integration related to arousal states. Through the program, children learn a repertoire of strategies that enhance their abilities to learn, interact with others, and work or play. Children not only learn to monitor their level of alertness, but improve in self-esteem and self-confidence. If children are intellectually challenged or developmentally younger than the age of eight, the program's concepts can be utilized by staff to facilitate optimal functioning. Join us in this practical workshop and learn specific methods that can be incorporated easily into therapeutic & educational programs. This Online Course is intended for a variety of professionals, including OT's, PT's, SLP's, teachers, counselors and parents. All who participate will glean new information whether or not they have tried using the program. Additional info Certificate of attendance for 20 contact hours Cost: $375.00 Credits available: Yes
