Lafayette, LA – Complementary Interventions for Autism, Asperger’s, Sensory & ADHD in Children & Adolescents
201 Kaliste Saloom Rd
Lafayette, LA 70508
Recent research shows that many children and teens with Autism, SPD and ADHD do not receive adequate therapeutic intervention. These diagnoses are now being recognized as part of a larger complex with overlapping symptoms and body-wide impairments affecting several organ systems, not just the brain. The risks for delinquency, substance abuse, social skills deficits, health problems, obsessions, compulsions, sensory processing deficits, and profound academic problems are high for most of these children and teens.
This brand new, practical seminar explores clinical applications from several directions for maximum impact on the child, teen, and family. You will find truly CREATIVE and USER-FRIENDLY STRATEGIES that REALLY WORK for any involved professional or concerned family member. Because it provides a comprehensive set of practical strategies, this seminar is a pivotal training experience for anyone concerned with helping a child or teen with Autism, SPD or ADHD. It details many factors that can decrease symptoms, and you will be able to immediately create and implement a potent program of symptom control upon return to your practice, school, institution or home. It features extensive assessment information and hundreds of specific corrective activities.
