Purposeful Play for Therapeutic Progress
Play today does not look like it did even 10 years ago for American children. These changes have affected children developmentally, socially, and academically and have played a role in mental health changes. Pediatric therapists should be leaders in the field of promoting and preserving play as the best way to help children learn and maintain health and wellness. In this course, therapists will learn the societal factors that have led to the change in play trends and the associated effects. Evidence-based benefits of play in each developmental domain and for academic learning, sensory regulation, and mental health promotion are identified. Concepts and terms associated with research and theory around play are identified and applied to therapeutic settings by using video examples to guide the learner through identifying milestones and planning play-based intervention that encourages growth in multiple developmental domains. By sharing types of play, and toys by purpose and age/stage, therapists will be empowered to become play advocates both in their own practice settings and in their communities.
Roadblocks to Natural Development
As children grow and develop, there are often medical and environmental factors that can commonly become roadblocks to natural development if not detected and addressed. This includes lack of tummy time/container baby syndrome, prolonged sucking and bottle/pacifier use, missed hearing and vision diagnoses, media overuse, overparenting and a faulty sense of typical development, missed or late diagnoses, and nutrition/allergies. In the first of this two-part series, evidence surrounding lack of tummy time/container baby syndrome, prolonged sucking, and missed hearing and vision diagnoses are shared, along with signs and symptoms to watch for. In a problem-solution-based approach, strategies to prevent or support these challenges are shared for each roadblock.
Getting Started In Early Intervention
So you think you’d like to work in Early Intervention? The EI setting is an excellent fit for the therapist that likes to work directly and intimately with families in a coaching model and who likes to be creative and resourceful in daily interventions. In this course, seasoned early intervention therapists will walk you through all you need to know to start or enhance an existing successful career in early intervention.
