Managing child behavior and addressing increasing incidence of developmental delays is a challenge for every teacher. Sensory impairments, motor delays and an array of confusing behavioural disorders constitute today’s child. As the `gap’ in academic performance continues to widen, teachers everywhere are looking for efficient and effective tools and techniques to ensure literacy for all students. Zone’in, Move’in, Unplug’in and Live’in programs were designed by a school based pediatric occupational therapist to address sensory, motor, and technology addiction problems in a classroom setting. Zone’in is derived from sensory integration theory, and is a self regulation program to teach children how to get their energy in the Zone to Learn. Move’in is based on fine motor development theory, and is an assessment and intervention to achieve motor skill components necessary to print and read. Unplug’in builds performance skills in the Me, We, Earth and Spirit dimensions so children can unplug themselves from technology. Live’in Resource Guide contains comprehensive and easy to use strategies and handouts for schools and homes to achieve life long Balanced Technology Management.
Information received in the Zone’in, Move’in, Unplug’in and Live’in Training Workshop will provide participants will essential tools and techniques to improve attention, printing and reading ability, and enhance performance skills in all children.
