Therapeutic Listening Practical Applications for Students with Complex Needs – Live Webinar with Recording Access

July 1

| $195

Take a sneak peek inside the course to see how Quickshifts are integrated within a school curriculum.

Now available as a Recording!

This practical course is designed for therapists who have an understanding of Therapeutic Listening® and a variety of its music libraries. At times, therapists encounter difficulties with the implementation of Therapeutic Listening with children with Autism spectrum disorders, severe learning difficulties and/or challenging behaviors due to the range of complexities posed by this complex client group. This course will discuss sensory and regulation differences present in children with ASD and pose a framework for embedding therapy using Therapeutic Listening within a special school environment. We’ll explore ways to train staff; monitor outcomes and understand the differences in using Therapeutic Listening with this client group. This course will also deal with some of the challenges regularly faced by therapists including:

    • Assessment where standardized methods are not possible
    • Barriers to intervention – hard headphones, managing equipment, length of listening time
    • Choosing and using music from all aspects of the Therapeutic Listening libraries
    • Using appropriate postural, respiratory and sensory activities to support programs
    • Monitoring effectiveness

Evidence-based practice, case studies, videos and recorded discussions with parents, teachers and other therapists will be used to support learning.

Take an additional discount of $15 per participant for groups of 3 or more individuals enrolling simultaneously under the same web-order.
