Sensory Processing, Self-Regulation … and You

January 30, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

$20

Practical Tips for Engaging, Calming and Connecting. Because Sensory Input Drives Behavioral Output.

It’s true for every person – not enough stimulation and you can’t pay attention; too much and you can’t concentrate. For children, being over or under stimulated often results in difficulty processing sensory information and/or regulating attention, behavior and emotions.

This workshop, featuring Dr. Dan Griffith, is valuable to all parents. Dr. Griffith uses real life examples to help parents:
•Identify different types of common sensory/regulatory difficulties
•Work through the stresses these difficulties may have on the parent/child relationship
•Learn parenting and intervention strategies

Dr. Griffith is well known to Cradle families, as his class “Parenting a Child at Risk” has been part of our home study preparation for years. Along with an engaging and approachable style, Dr. Griffith brings to this topic a background in research as well as many years of clinical experience. Parents will leave the session with a better understanding of what might be causing certain behaviors as well as some specific, practical tips for how they can intervene.

$20/person, $10 for second family member; $5/child for babysitting
