VideoText

Millions of children experience learning disorders. As occupational therapists we are poised to teach techniques that improve functional outcomes that continue throughout the lifespan. As such, providing intervention at early stages in learning can positively impact students. By forming an individualized treatment plan tailored to the student’s specific needs, better outcomes occur. Course attendees will list learning disorders as well as treatment strategies for each. This course will provide detail about learning disorders and techniques which can be applied immediately for improved function in both the home and classroom setting. Accommodations, modifications, use of visual and kinesthetic techniques, sensory processing strategies, communication considerations, and social skill improvement add to your tool box as you work with students who have learning disorders.
