Maude Le Roux's Identification, Assessment and Intervention of Dyspraxia


Description: Dyspraxia is an important building block to academic, athletic and social-emotional proficiency. This 3-day online 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 second day will cover in-depth information on assessment and clinical observations following the three-phase system of Maude’s own Developmental Pathways Model (DPM). Therapy ideas are discussed throughout the workshop and with special emphasis on the third day. 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 across the different ages and stages of development and into adulthood. This definitive workshop will discuss key elements of information and strategies that truly can be changed due to the researched fact of neuroplasticity. It is a must-have workshop for the discerning therapist.

Thank you, I learned a lot and the workshop clarified many things for me. I found that my assessment I am doing now is worlds apart from 6 months ago. Worlds apart.

This is a wonderful course to take if you are a therapist with and without experience on dyspraxia. It provides an in-depth understanding of dyspraxia, the various profiles of dyspraxia as well its effect on development and function.

It was a great pleasure to gain the knowledge of our lecturer Maude Le Roux. Participating in the course gave me a general view of Dyspraxia and holistic view to the speech and language disorders and to learning difficulties as well.  I work in the Day Center with children who have ASD and other developmental disorders, communication and praxis difficulties. Also, I work at school with children who experience learning difficulties. Sometimes I feel that the deeper reasons should be considered to help the children and the essence of the problem is not revealed. During the course I experienced and found out several very important points of view, which encouraged me to dig deeper when evaluating the situation of the person and providing professional help for him or her.
