Description: As practitioners in the field of early development, scholastic and social performance, we are under increased pressure to provide thorough, individualized assessments in a timely manner. This 8-week course is the second tier (Silver) of the track series in Dyspraxia and in order to enroll, the participant would have had to complete the first tier at the Bronze level. The information will be presented through the 3-phase system of the Developmental Pathways Model (designed by Maude Le Roux) and support the therapist to be able to discern Sensory Processing as well as different sub categories of Dyspraxia. An evaluation template will be provided upon which possible standardized assessments as well as clinical observations will be discussed to enhance clinical judgment and support intervention goals. Clinical observation forms with norms for each phase will be provided to assist in supporting standardized assessments, as well as provide a strong picture of information in situations where standardized assessments may not be possible. The participant will be provided the videos each week to practice the different clinical observations so the learning will be more fully integrated. This is an intense course, but will satisfy the learner in their ability to apply the theory and science presented in the Bronze level.
