An increasing number of children (1 in 6*) are diagnosed with a variety of learning, neurological and behavioral “disorders” (e.g. Attention Deficit Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, ACES, PTSD etc.)
While some people discover strategies to help themselves maneuver the world with their sensory processing challenges, many grow up to be adults grappling with unresolved sensory bombardment that often leads to mental health issues.
Joanie offers a unique and moving workshop for clinical staff. Through her in-depth presentation about SPD, ACEs and PTSD she creates a safe space for honest and unpretentious conversation where therapists can hear the angle of a parent of an atypical child, information that is often implied in counseling sessions but not always openly spoken about.
