If you have an asynchronous gifted or twice-exceptional child (or if you were one yourself!) you’ve probably been referred to an occupational therapist or have explored occupational therapy as a support. But WHAT IS OT? And what role does an OT play in your gifted child’s life? In this session, we will discuss: -What are Overexcitabiliities and how do they relate to OT? -When do OE’s cross into Sensory Processing Disorder territory? -How can OT support your child’s development? What does an OT work on and what is their general approach? Does it matter if my OT “gets” giftedness? -What can you do to support your child’s sensory needs at home? Join us for a much-needed discussion to help demystify OT, OEs, and SPD!
