To start, here is a recent testimonial from a paraeducator in the Springfield, VT school district following the OT in the Classroom presentation,
"Honestly, this was the best in-service I have ever had in all of my years as a para. It was the most beneficial with the most relevant information that I could use. I don't think that I have ever gotten more out of a presentation before. Thank you!"Presentation Option 1:

|What Sensory Processing Disorder Can Look Like.|
"Schools can decrease their referrals by educating staff on how to incorporate 'occupational therapy' skills into the school setting. Participants will learn about: occupational therapy, fine motor skills & activities, proper seating and alternatives to seating for success, pencil grasps for ages and stages, pre-writing & writing skills, multi-sensory learning, visual motor skills & activities, sensory integration & sensory processing disorder - sensory integration is broken down by each system and participants will learn how to identify sensory processing challenges and are provided activities to help support each sensory system; and lastly, teachers will briefly learn about the importance of holistic approaches in the classroom."
