Alert Program Online Course
Alert Program Online Course
Dates = September 29 - October 29, 2015; November 10 - December 10, 2015 and January 26 - February 25, 2016
location = Online
description = 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. Come to one of our trainings (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 or Aspergers Syndrome enjoy using the engine analogy or choose their own special area of interest such as favorite animals or
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 where talking 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 online training is taught by the co-authors, Mary Sue Williams and Sherry Shellenberger, 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 Alert Programs step-by-step approach. Youll find out why thousands have said, this is one of the best workshops I've
ever attended.

The CEU Group
Dates = Year-round
location = Nationwide
description = The CEU Group is a brand new twist on an old idea in continuing education.  The idea is that a professional can get a
discount on a course by registering as a group.  But what if said professional does not have the resources or contacts to get a group
together? In the past, this situation has meant that the professional has to pay 10-35% more to attend the event.  This result is no longer
necessary!  The CEU Group is working with many providers of continuing education to get group rates, and even better to hundreds of
courses nationwide.  We then pass those discounts down to you, the licensed professional, so you can get the great continuing
education you need at a price you want.

To come see how this works, please come visit us at www.theceugroup.com and join our fast-growing database to keep abreast on new
partnerships and new participating events in your area.

Capturing the Power and Potential of Play, Movement and Creativity: The DIR Model Sets the Stage
Dates = Sunday, October 18, 2015
location = Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College, NYC
description = Over the centuries, across species and cultures, play provided the opportunity for exploration, discovery, and creativity. Play
was for fun and enjoyment, a time to move and think, spawning attachments, shared attention, engagement, and relationships.In an age
when less time is devoted to play, and digital or instructional activities dominate, the power of natural play is in peril.

Today neuroscientists confirm play is biologically based and stimulates brain growth, essential for emotional, cognitive, language and
social capacities in all children, including those with sensory processing and autism spectrum disorders.  But are right and wrong
answers displacing emotional thinking, creativity, movement, and the joy of learning? Current science shows physical play provides a
pathway to regulation- sensory modulation, attention, emotional regulation and perseverance- and Floortime fosters creative ways to
express feelings, to problem solve and to become symbolic.  So, do children with special needs need more or less play?

This conference aims to help parents and professionals understand the developmental foundations for play and the experiences
necessary to capture its power and potential.The role of the creative arts therapies will be highlighted as a creative extension of play and
the therapeutic powers of play will be addressed.
