Meltdowns to Motivated: Using Body Activated Learning to go from Self Doubt to Sensational in a Digital World.
Build a better sensory support plan for disorganized and dysregulated children! As time spent in front of screens for learning and leisure increases, children’s sensory systems are compromised, leading to difficulties with attention, self-regulation, and participation. Join Aubrey Schmalle OTR/L as she talks about how to meet the needs of a digital generation of learners who need a different kind of sensory support plan to be sensational!
Bio: Aubrey Schmalle, OTR/L
I have always had a passion for empowering the people closest to a child with sensory processing deficits to see them through a new lens in order to create a plan to support learning and self-regulation. To that end, I created the Body Activated Learning Handbook along with provider certification programs and a parent coaching program to empower the community to better support children with diverse neurosensory needs. The handbook is an easy, non-technical reference to make the complicated subject of sensory processing understandable for the non-therapist but still rooted in science and research. I speak nationally to educators, therapists, counselors, and psychologists on balancing technology with sensory “smart” movement techniques with a digital generation in mind. Join me on a journey toward empowerment to take children from meltdowns to motivation while developing the habits to succeed in a digital world.
