Nurturing the Child with Special Needs

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Nurturing the Child with Special Needs is a 4-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that provides strategies for healthcare professionals and parents to support children with special needs to manage behavior, sensory issues, and language challenges.

All children need to feel a sense of belonging and significant in ways that elicit positive responses from those around them. Sometimes, a child with special needs can alienate others when attempting to have their unique requirements met. This results in the child feeling even more isolated and ineffectual.

Clinicians, parents, and teachers are thus required to adapt their interactions and look at the whole child, as they take his or her particular needs into account. This is not an easy undertaking, as it involves staying focused on children’s individual strengths, while helping them understand and manage their challenges.

This course will provide perspectives, strategies, and techniques for helping children with special needs and their parents find competence – and confidence – in managing behavior, sensory issues, speech and language challenges, and frustration by learning calming, supportive ways to build a cooperative and nurturing relationship.
