This resource-filled, 6-hour course explains how improving basic developmental skills can significantly impact attention and motor skills. Topics covered include (1) explanations and strategies for visual perception; (2) a screening process, compensation techniques, and exercises for retained primitive reflexes; (3) classroom implementation strategies for the sensory system; and (4) the use of technology compensation techniques, including the use of iPads. Overall, an abundance of strategies are provided, including over 50 apps, that you can use the very next day!
