This interactive workshop will give parents of children with mild to moderate special needs and sensory processing issues a forward direction in understanding how to implement easy and inexpensive strategies in their home. Participants will come away with the following:
- A handful of activities that involve movement, breath, and environmental strategies that can help your child feel more integrated and grounded, as well as helping parents redirect behavioral challenges
- An awareness of community, online, books, and nutritional resources
- An understanding of healthy “brain language” and how the way we talk with our children opens the communication process between parent/child
Come join Stacey for a playful, yet powerful 90 minute workshop and leave feeling empowered to build a solid foundation in advocating for your child. This workshop is not appropriate for parents of children with severe and profound special needs.
Cost: $20 advance per family; $25 at the door. To purchase a ticket and for more information, visit http://www.positiveparentingaustin.com/.
Bio: Stacey Loop brings a playful approach in teaching parents positive strategies in working with children with special needs and sensory processing issues. She is informed by a combination of her years as a professional educator as well as a personal journey of empowering her own son. Professionally, Stacey taught in Texas public schools as an elementary Special Education Teacher for eleven years. Here, she worked with a variety of neurological processing challenges such as Autism Spectrum, Sensory Processing Disorder, Down’s Syndrome, ADHD/ADD and language delays. She also worked with the local Headstart Program screening children for disabilities and advocating for parents to understand and engage resources for early intervention. After the birth of her son, her personal development included many years of mind/body training as a yoga educator. She deeply believes in the “ internal environment” of our children being healthy, as well as the learning environment (“external”) being whole and engaging. Every child needs us as parents to understand behavior, so we can work with our beloved children to help them move forward in optimizing their self expression, confidence, and awareness. Think proactive vs. reactive. Stacey’s intention is to teach you positive strategies that can be fun to do with your child and benefit the whole family.
