LACPAs Child and Adolescent SIG welcomes Leah Hiller, MA, OTR/L

Date: Wednesday, September 21, 12:00 1:00 pm

Topic: Sensory Strategies for Self-Regulation

Presenter: Leah Hiller, MA, OTR/L 

Leah Hiller is the founder of Hiller Therapy and leads a team of pediatric occupational therapists in assessment, evaluation, and treatment in her outdoor clinic. Ms. Hiller helps children, young adults, and their families to fully engage in the activities of daily life by providing teachers and parents with the strategies, support, and evidence-based resources to help children thrive at home, school, and play. Before becoming an OT, Ms. Hiller was an elementary school teacher for almost 10 years. This workshop focuses on sensory processing & self-regulation. Each of us is a unique sensory being. We respond to what we feel, see, hear, touch and how we move differently. The way we process sensory information influences emotions and behavior.
