That's the main thing I can say. WOW! Judy Deinema, Occupational Therpist
from Albuquerque came to Gallup on Saturday, September 13 to do a training on Sensory
Integration issues. She gave practical ideas for students who are overwhelmed
with everything coming at them. How do we help them focus, calm down,
THE COMMUNITY IS HUNGRY to learn practical ideas for helping kids. We
opened this training up for adoptive families and professionals who work with
our kids. The training was on a Saturday so we didn't expect a great response
from professionals- but were we ever wrong!! We had more people wanting to come
than we could handle. We allowed 45 people to come to the training: teachers,
special ed, pre-school teachers, counselors, shadows,
assistants, and professionals are looking for practical answers!!!
THEIR RESPONSE?? Overwhelming positive evaluations. Every participant
thought it was helpful. So many said, "We need more of this." Some said,
"This should be mandatory for every new teacher".
WOW! What a valuable day!! Thanks so much Judy for sharing your knowledge!
Have a great day!
