Calming Sensory Activities for Kids (Carol Kranowitz, interviewed by Penny Williams)
Modern brain science is proving the large role that sensory processing plays in human behavior. Not only is sensory experience the way we process our environment and what’s happening within us, but it is also a vital part of how we regulate our bodies and emotions to respond efficiently and effectively to life’s challenges. In this session, Carol discusses sensory tools and activities to calm kids with ADHD and/or autism. This session will fill your parenting toolbox.
Why Vision Matters: Getting and Keeping Your Child’s Vision In-Sync (Joye Newman, interviewed by Sarah Wayland)
What you see and how you process it is fundamental to your ability to navigate the world. In this fascinating interview, Joye explains the difference between what you see and what you do with what you see, and how difficulties accurately processing the visual world can lead to confusion, clumsiness, and inexplicable behavior. She describes how some of these behaviors are misunderstood, what to look for, and simple activities you can do at home to help your child’s vision become more functional.
