ECHO Term 1 Conference

Connecting the Dots - Movement, Learning and the Brain

 

Saturday 19th March 2016

Adelaide Pavilion, South Terrace, Adelaide 5000

 


 

 

Keynote Presentation:

Dino Mennillo has been a registered Occupational Therapist since 1998 and has been the director of OTFC since January 2005. His professional experience has involved working with children and adolescents in a variety of settings (private, community and government) in South Australia, Victoria and NSW. He became the director of OTFC following his employment and training under Veronica Steer (previous OTFC director for 25 years and recognised Sensory Integration Trainer). Dino’s areas of interest include working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory processing difficulties/ dysfunction, and behavioural / emotional difficulties.

 

Presentations:

Christy Ozzella is the loving mother of Leo, a Year One child who is charmingly funny, articulate, loving, creative and also happens to have some sensory processing challenges. Christy will share her perspectives as a parent in advocating for her child, navigating the system and what she wishes we knew that could help in our roles as educators.

Amanda Bartram is a Learning Advisor at Blair Athol North Birth-7 School. She and 14 boys in years 2 to 6 spend their days learning together with a focus on meeting sensory, social and curriculum needs through play and community involvement.

Susan Sandow is an Early Years Educator in the Nest at Alberton Primary School. She has carefully set up her environment and developed her pedagogy with an awareness of children’s sensory processing needs.   

Eric Harris is a co-educator working in the Nest at Alberton Primary School and has set up supervised ‘wrestling’ as one way of addressing the sensory needs of children. Eric is passionate about developing a connectedness between mind body and world.
