Practical Tips for Engaging, Calming and Connecting. Because Sensory Input Drives Behavioral Output. 

It's true for every person - not enough stimulation and you can't pay attention; too much and you can't concentrate. For children, being over or under stimulated often results in difficulty processing sensory information and/or regulating attention, behavior and emotions. 

This workshop is valuable to all parents. Dr. Griffith uses real life examples to help parents:

  • Identify different types of common sensory/regulatory difficulties
  • Work through the stresses these difficulties may have on the parent/child relationship
  • Learn parenting and intervention strategies

Dr. Griffith is well known to Cradle families, as his class “Parenting a Child at Risk” has been part of our home study preparation for years. Along with an engaging and approachable style, Dr. Griffith brings to this topic a background in research as well as many years of clinical experience.  Parents will leave the session with a better understanding of what might be causing certain behaviors as well as some specific, practical tips for how they can intervene.

Understanding how a child processes and responds to the world around him is valuable information for any parent. Dr. Griffith is an excellent educator and presenter. I highly recommend this workshop.  - Dori Fujii, LSCW, Cradle Therapist

This was a perfect mix of the practical and the theoretical. I now understand why my son behaves the way he does and have some ideas for how to help him. - Julie L. Adoptive Mom
