Understanding and Supporting Our Children with Special Needs

16 June 2018 @ 9:30 am - 5:30 pm HKT


SNNHK is excited to partner again with world-renowned and respected mental health occupational therapist Kim Barthel, OTR, who teaches internationally on specialties such as attachment, trauma, addiction, sensory processing, movement, and learning. A proponent of ‘putting your mind into the mind of the other’, she teaches globally about understanding what is behind complex behaviour.

About the workshop: This one-day workshop looks at problem-solving behaviours and learning, based on observations that look beyond ‘the label’. The workshop will include demos with children to model desired behaviours. To support our children at home, we need to understand what is happening at a sensory, cognitive and emotional level. Understanding the brain and how we are all wired differently provides a refreshing and a compassionate perspective whenever we are confronted with behavioural challenges.


Learning objectives:

  • Gain preliminary experience in understanding your child’s behaviour.
  • Develop a toolbox of sensory strategies to use at home for regulation and learning.
  • Develop relational strategies for supporting dysregulation at home.


About Kim Barthel: 

Kim actively supports multi-disciplinary functions and healing in many cultures internationally. She is a pioneer in reinforcing the importance of relationship in therapy and education, blending the art of intuitive inquiry with cutting-edge developments in neuroscience.

Some of Kim’s specialties include Developmental Delays, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Mental Health, Complex Behaviour, Sensory Processing, Attachment, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the Visual/Vestibular System and Neuro-Developmental Treatment
