When: Thursdays from 2 to 4pm US ET
Description: As practitioners in the field of early development, educational and social performance, we are under increased pressure to provide thorough, individualized assessments in a timely manner. This 8-week course is the second tier (Silver) of the track series in Dyspraxia and to enroll, the participant would have had to complete the first tier at the bronze level.
- The information will be presented through the 3-phase system of the Developmental Pathways Model (designed by Maude Le Roux) and support the therapist to be able to discern Sensory Processing as well as different subcategories of Dyspraxia.
- An evaluation template will be provided upon which possible standardized assessments as well as clinical observations will be discussed to enhance clinical judgment and support intervention goals.
- Clinical observation forms with norms for each phase will be provided to assist in supporting standardized assessments, as well as provide a strong picture of information in situations where standardized assessments may not be possible.
- The participant will be provided the videos each week to practice the different clinical observations so the learning will be more fully integrated.
- Learners will also present their own case studies to discuss clinical thinking
- This is an intense course, but will satisfy the learners in their ability to apply the theory and science presented in Track 1
- Due to the in-depth case study discussions this workshop is limited to 12 attendees

She completed the SIPT training in 2002 and Sensory Integration forms the foundation from which she continues to develop different tracks of assessment and intervention. Maude is certified in multiple different techniques that she applies uniquely through her Developmental Pathways Model (DPM). She owns and directs a clinical practice in Glen Mills, PA, where she has become known for her effective assessment and intervention protocol. While she trains globally, Maude continues to operate this active practice to continue to inform her work and develop the case studies from which she expands her assessment and intervention protocol.
