8:00 AM-2:00 PM

St. Columba's Nursery School
4201 Albemarle St NW
Washington, DC 20016
(Just a 10-minute drive or two short metro stops from the Hyatt Regency Bethesda)

STAR Institute has teamed up with local community partners, Sensational Kids Therapy and Occupational Therapy Consulting, for this year’s Pre-Symposium Parent Workshop presented by local experts.

The 2019 topic, Developing Community Supports focuses on empowering parents in their ongoing efforts to support their child in everyday interactions with community members. Dr. Dan Shapiro, MD will discuss the role of a developmental pediatrician and how to facilitate a collaborative, effective therapeutic team for your child. Carol Kranowitz, MA, author of the Out-Of-Sync Child series, will provide simple, practical activities to promote regulation that parents can use when out in the community with their child. Kelly Beins, OTR/L, Director of Occupational Therapy Consulting, LLC in Frederick, MD and children's book author will discuss her effective communication strategy – communicating "W.I.S.E.L.Y." –  which empowers parents in their communication with community and family members regarding their child's unique sensory processing needs.

Throughout the day participants will enjoy small group discussions, parent-to-parent networking and an expert panel Q & A. Continental breakfast, snacks and beverages are included with each registration.

The Parent Workshop location is just a 10-minute drive or two short metro stops from the Hyatt Regency Bethesda, where the Symposium will be held November 15-16, 2019.

Pre-Symposium Professional Workshop

November 14, 2019
8:30 AM-4:30 PM

Moving Beyond One-to-One Intervention

Learn the keys to creating unique, evidence-based, cost effective groups for children and teens that increase accessibility to therapy while enhancing client outcomes.

Often families come to therapy wanting and needing support in social domains for their child or teen. Therapeutic groups meet this client driven need, are cost effective, efficient and occupationally rich mediums within which to foster change.

STAR Institute has identified key procedural and therapeutic elements to successful outcomes in groups for children and teens. During this workshop, these elements will be explained and their application explored through video examples of STAR Institute signature groups including Bike Camp, Trampoline Group, SuperHero Academy as well as teen centered FUSE Camp and Teen Club. Practical applications and research supporting group effectiveness will be shared.

*The Pre-Symposium Professional Workshop will not be live-streamed*



Who should attend
Occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, physical therapists, special education teachers, psychologists, early intervention specialists, nurses, physicians, mental health professionals and other providers.

  • Sarah A. Schoen, PhD, OTR/L
