Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) June 06, 2013
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) Foundation will be conducting a new webinar series, The Occupational Therapist’s Role: From Evaluation to Treatment starting on June 19, 2013. Lucy Jane Miller, PhD, OTR and Sarah A. Schoen, PhD, OTR will explain how assessments are selected for identification, treatment planning and measuring progress of children with developmental concerns.
This three-part series is the first of many to come that focus on the flow from assessment to development of a treatment plan. “We are very excited to present these webinars, which offer such great practical tools and information,” said Sheryl Benjamin, executive director of the SPD Foundation. Each series will highlight an assessment tool commonly used in clinic and school settings. Although intended primarily for occupational therapists, content may be beneficial to other professionals, including psychologists, physical therapists, teachers, and other childhood intervention specialists. This first series begins with an overview of assessments in the first two-hour program, and then focuses on the M-FUN (Miller Function and Participation Scales) in the second and third sessions of the series.
