Presented by Laurie Hopkins, MS OTR/L, Spectrum Services Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Adaptive Physical Education Department Head

There is no “hocus pocus” involved in becoming a better communicator with the limbic system of the brain, which has so much influence over the sensory seeking and avoiding behaviors which so many children on the spectrum display.

Laurie will share the key needs of the limbic system and discuss how a child’s behavior can be a clear indication of what their actual sensory needs are.  She will also explore basic strategies to consider and then adapt based on individual and family preferences.  By learning to speak the language of the brain’s limbic system, shifts can occur which at times seems almost…..magical

Please RSVP to LSiuta@centerforspectrumservices.org
