 Sensory processing is complex and individualized. In this workshop you will learn about:

  • Brain function, brain differences
  • How sensory processing changes from person to person and how it affects how we feel and how we act
  • How to identify and meet a child’s sensory needs
  • Teaching Self Regulation (the Alert Program) and how it differs from “emotional regulation”
  • How you can help children to be calmer and alert

Marc Landry is a registered occupational therapist with over 26 years of experience working with children in a variety of settings – public schools, early childhood settings, families’ homes.  Much of this experience is with children with autism and sensory processing disorders.  Marc has developed and delivers workshops and training to caregivers, parents, OT’s and other professionals.
