"How Does Your Engine Run?" the Alert Program for Self-Regulation





1.275 (12.75 Contact Hours)


"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 therapists, teachers, or parents use these simple words to begin the Alert Program, they enter an exciting adventure with children. The journey unfolds easily with the program's clearly defined steps for teaching self-regulation awareness. The Alert Program assists children who have learning disabilities and attention problems (as well as typical children) to understand the basic theory of sensory integration related to arousal states. Through the program, children learn a repertoire of strategies that enhance their abilities to learn, interact with others, and work or play. Children not only learn to monitor their level of alertness, but improve in self-esteem and self-confidence. If children are intellectually challenged or developmentally younger than the age of eight, the program's concepts can be utilized by staff to facilitate optimal functioning. Join us in this practical workshop and learn specific methods that can be incorporated easily into theraputic & educational programs.
