MetroEHS Pediatric Therapy provides continuing education programming for MetroEHS clinicians as often as possible. We believe that clinicians who learn from a variety of theoretical approaches to intervention, across the disciplines, make for stronger and well-rounded therapists.
Our ultimate goal is an earlier discharge for our clients and providing the best possible care utilizing a collaborative knowledge base.
Here are some examples of the excellent programming provided by MetroEHS for our various clinicians and disciplines...
Dr. Gregory Hanley, Ph.D., BCBA-D, LABA, presented a two-day workshop for MetroEHS BCBAs and guests regarding a comprehensive and compassionate approach for addressing problem behavior. Together the BCBAs in attendance learned about today's Applied Behavior Analysis, Practical Functional Assessment and Skilled-Bases Treatment process for specific learners, and more. Dr. Hanley has over 30 years of experience and has published over 100 book chapters and articles in peer-reviewed journals. Currently, he serves as a Research Professor at WNEU, and the CEO of FTF Behavioral, an international training and consulting group based in Worcester Massachusetts.
Tera Sumpter, M.A., CCC-SLP, founder of Seeds of Learning LLC, visited the MetroEHS Saline Clinic in September for a continuing education opportunity for MetroEHS Clinicians and friends. Ms. Sumpter offers a groundbreaking and holistic approach to the assessment and treatment of childhood learning disabilities. This revolutionary method assembles the puzzle pieces of learning, connecting the dots from the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and speech language pathology to provide a comprehensive process for understanding and assisting children who struggle with learning. Thank you, Tera! https://seedsoflearningllc.com/
Dr. Rick Solomon, MD., Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrician, founder of the PLAY Project, spoke to MetroEHS employees in late January of 2022. This program assists our therapists with re-engaging our parents, all therapy staff: Speech, OT, PT & BCBAs took classes with The PLAY Project encouraging therapy staff to learn how to “play” with their kiddos in therapy but trains us how to teach our parents to “play” with their children. Several of our MetroEHS are now certified Play Project Clinicians! Thank you, Dr. Solomon! https://playproject.org/
