We will explore how early life experiences impact neurodevelopment in adopted and foster children, and children from difficult beginnings, and how parents and professionals can nurture connection and integration through relationship and play. Virginia Spielmann, Occupational Therapist, will be sharing methods for promoting attachment, self regulation and building healthy minds based on DIRFloortime® principles and interpersonal neurobiology.
