Catherine Lord: ADOS

Annamarie van Jaarsveld: Sensory Processing
Saturday, 4 July: 08h00 – 13h00
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a neurological disorder that causes difficulties with the processing
of sensory information, which not only influences behavior but also creates challenges in performing
everyday activities.

Recent research indicates that 1 in every 20 children experiences symptoms of SPD that are significant
enough to affect their ability to participate fully in everyday life. SPD are linked to neurological conditions
including Autism Spectrum Diagnosis, Attention Deficit Disorder, and Developmental Dyspraxia.

This workshop aims at heightening the awareness of SPD disorders and at empowering participants with
knowledge on their own sensory processing profiles and will also provide basic skills to recognize and
handle children with SPD disorders.

Outcomes of the workshop:

   •   Understand
          o the theory of SPD disorders
          o your own sensory profile and how your behavior, related to sensory experiences, can
              impact on yourself as a health professional
          o children with SPD
   •   Learn about
          o how SPD children experience their sensory world
          o identification of possible sensory processing issues
          o basic strategies that can be used with SPD children
          o activities for SPD children
          o empowering parents/teachers who struggle with understanding and
          o handling their child with SPD

Jane Jarvis: ADHD Games workshop - Helping with homework and learning
through play
Sunday, 5 July: 08h00 – 13h00
Games are a wonderful way to learn skills such as spelling and other language related skills including
parts of speech, similes, homonyms, plurals, opposites, etc. Times tables, bonds and other mathematical
skills as well as studying for tests can be made fun through the use of games. Games are, however, not
only useful for teaching these skills but are also invaluable for the repetition necessary for developing
automaticity and, therefore, fluency and speed of these skills. Repetition is BORING and most children
are not motivated to learn in this way, particularly those with ADHD who lose focus easily and who need
lots of variety and novelty to keep them stimulated. This workshop will demonstrate a number of games
which can be used to drill the above skills. Some of these games are readily available in our homes and
classrooms but can be used to do so much more. Others are quick and cost-effective to make. This
workshop will definitely teach one how to make learning more fun.
Hans Koot: Health behavior and chronic conditions in childhood and

Catherine Lord: ADOS Research Group

from other studies and discussion of obtaining further training and reliability.

Johan Le Roux: Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Children
and Adolescents
Sunday, 5 July: 08h00 – 17h00
The workshop is to provide the necessary tools to support, assist and treat children exposed to trauma.
This treatment model was initially developed to address trauma associated with child sexual abuse and
has more recently been adapted for use with children who have experienced a wide array of traumatic
experiences, including multiple traumas. Research indicates that TF-CBT is effective in treating
posttraumatic stress disorder, depression, and behavioral problems (including sexual behavior problems)
in children exposed to traumatic events.

This treatment can be used by a variety of mental health professionals including psychologists, social
workers, professional counselors, psychiatrists, or clinical counselors. This training program presumes
basic training in working clinically with distressed children and their families, a sound theoretical
understanding of cognitive behavioral principles, and a working knowledge of child development.

TF-CBT has been found to be a powerful tool in helping to alleviate the distress of traumatized children
and their families.

The workshop will consist of video training sessions, practical examples, self evaluation and discussion

With this workshop attendees will receive a sound introduction to an invaluable tool for intervention in
traumatised children.
