Occupational Therapy Practitioners possess strongholds of sensory processing and underlying neurological processes, They understand constructs from contemporary neuroscience, illuminating the essential role of the vestibular system for neural networking that supports learning and communication.
Learners of this course will receive theoretical foundations as well as evidence from contemporary neuroscience so that they will expand their understanding of how the interventions support the mechanism of change - neuroplasticity, which results from the vestibular activation in an otherwise underperforming vestibular system.
1. Learners will identify 2-3 indicators of delayed Vestibular maturation within primary school aged children.
2. Learners will recognize how vestibular activation mediates attention, memory, learning, and communication.
3. Learners will discover and identify 2-3 ways to activate vestibular functioning universally within the classroom or within the clinic setting.
4. Learners will recognize and articulate 2-3 expectations for vestibulOTherapy outcomes for children who have under-registration and delayed maturation of this sensory system.

Questions and Answers
Throughout her doctoral research and tenure as a school occupational therapist and Adjunct Professor, Connie has developed expertise in a wide variety of clinical interventions, using an investigative approach to determine the most effective interventions for helping each individual child. Her clinical expertise, research, and publications have developed her leadership with vestibular interventions in pediatric - occupational therapy.
Connie is keenly interested in the impact of vestibular therapies in relation to children’s occupational performance. As a seasoned pediatric OT with over 25 years of clinical experience, specialty certification in Ayres Sensory Integration, and OT doctorate, friends and colleagues look to her for professional expertise and positive leadership.
Her mission is to help children and their supporting adults understand and integrate vestibular supports into their daily routine to empower children to reach beyond their potential and soar. She is hopeful the constructs of her educational offerings will be transformative to the classroom and pediatric OT programming to promote children's achievement in social and academic occupations.
