Providing free educational webinars is one of our missions at Neurodiversity Ireland because we know parents are struggling to access services. In addition, we have opened the first Sensory Centre in Ireland, supported by Aviva, and are now offering OT-staffed camps and after school programs for neurodiverse children.
The Occuplaytional Therapist
As more and more parents, caregivers, and adults start undertaking the work of helping the next generation of children feel safe to express their feelings rather than repeat unhealthy habits from the past, it can be hard knowing where to begin or which way is up. Co-regulation, self-regulation, interoception, what do these words mean? What does processing emotions actually look like in practice? When should children have developed which emotional skills, and how do adults help them on the way? These are some of the really powerful and important questions that Kelsie Olds, who goes by The Occuplaytional Therapist online, tackles during this webinar
