5 Half-Day Workshop

Seminar: Certificate in Dyspraxia – Defining, Assessing, and Intervening for Change

This 3-day workshop will include the theory of different sub-categories of Dyspraxia and explain the background in the nervous system. Multiple techniques and interventions (top down and bottom up) will be shared in order to plan intervention. The third day will cover in-depth information on assessment and clinical observations following the three-phase system of Maude’s own Developmental Pathways Model (DPM). This is a workshop not to be missed for anyone working in the field of pediatrics, schools, and early learning. Discover how Dyspraxia influences learning, attention and executive functioning.

Maude Le Roux, OTR/L is an international speaker considering a wide array of topics pertaining development in children. She has been a regular speaker at our events for thee past 10 years. Even as she travels and trains extensively, she continues to operate a pediatric practice in Glen Mills, PA.

She serves on the Board for ATTACh to develop the consideration of attachment and trauma in the work of occupational therapists.

Maude opened her own online academy (www.maudeleroux.com) in January 2019 to increase accessibility of practical “know-how” based on scientific theory for therapists, teachers and parents. Her mantra: ‘If a child could, he / she would!”
