Alert Program Online Course
Alert Program Online Course
Dates = 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.

Perceptual Enrichment Program Training
Dates = May 23 - 27 or July 11-15, 2016
location = Sarasota, Florida
description = The Perceptual Enrichment Program (PEP), created by Patricia Theisen, MS, was devised to remediate learning disorders by
revisiting the stages of early development at the sensori-motor, pre-operations, and concrete levels in order to build understandings from
pre-logical actions into that of logical operations.

PEP honors the close link that exists between the cognitive and neurological aspects of the individual by synthesizing the cognitive and
neurological aspects of development into a practical program.  PEP is particularly concerned with establishing a system of organization, in
line with the principles of Piaget who asserts, "...intelligence organizes the world by organizing the self."

The PEP format is designed to initiate the discovery of logical concepts by means of tactile-kinesthetic perception.  Through the use of
pre-academic materials, logical principles are constructed by coordinating actions with objects and then abstracting the relations between
them.  Areas of focus include: spatial organization, figure ground orientation, classification (attention to details) and inferences and
abstractions (logic).  These areas are vital components to not only perceptual development, but motor and language development as well.  
In this way, PEP can successfully transform subjective response styles into that of objective reasoning skills, raising thought from lower to
higher levels of awareness.

PEP enhances development in the following areas:

Concentration, focus and attention
Handwriting and spatial planning
Processing and integrating information
Organization and memory
Language processing
Bilateral motor coordination
Self-confidence and behavior
Academic performance

By integrating cognitive and neurological principles, PEP makes a valuable contribution to the functional development of intelligence.  Its
application to the enhancement of academic skills is an integral aspect of the program, making it far reaching in its behavioral and
educational implications.
