Online Alert Program Course
Added by TherapyWorks on 2015-08-19
If your body is like a car engine, sometimes it runs on high, sometimes it runs on low, and sometimes it runs just right. When teachers, parents or therapists use these simple words with children to begin the Alert Program®, they support self-regulation, self-esteem, and self-monitoring skills. Enroll in our online course (and/or use our books, songs and games) to learn how easy it is to help children keep their engines running just right at home or school. The Alert Program® has been adapted for all ages and all types of disabilities, including autism. Typically those children with high functioning autism enjoy using the engine analogy or choose their own special area of interest such as favorite animals, dinosaurs or even Winnie the Pooh characters to describe how alert they feel. If children are developmentally younger than the age of eight, are non-verbal, or have other learning challenges wheretalking about engines would be too abstract, the adults (parents, teachers, and other caregivers) learn what they can do to set children up for success, even if the child does not participate in labeling their engine level. Through the Alert Program®, adults learn how they can support sensory diets and be detectives in determining what best meets childrens' needs for optimal functioning. This training offers practical, low-budget activities you can use immediately in homes, classrooms, or therapy sessions. Join the countless professionals and parents world-wide who help children succeed through the step-by-step approach of the Alert Program®. You'll find out why thousands have said, this is one of the best workshops I've ever attended.
This Online Course is intended for a variety of professionals, including OT's, PT's, SLP's, teachers, counselors and parents. All who participate will glean new information whether or not they have tried using the program.
