Course Description:

One benefit of providing services in a child’s home is that we work with the child in his/her comfort zone. One drawback is that we often have to compete with a child’s favorite activities to engage him/her in therapy tasks. This session will help therapists identify new materials and strategies to engage children in therapy activities.
