Introductory Class: AT EASE™ Learning Model
Presented by Kathi Calouri, Ph.D. of PACE Place
Dr. Kathi Calouri is one of the founders of Project PACE, Inc. and PACE Place in Oregon. Kathi will present information on how to understand challenging behaviors through the filter of emotional regulation. This presentation will be appropriate for parents and professionals who are interacting with individuals of all ages and all skill levels with diagnoses of developmental delays that affect social learning (e.g., Autism Spectrum Disorders, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, NVLD, PDD-NOS).
Participants will be introduced to the AT EASE™ Learning Model, which guides the parent to generate strategies and a style of engagement that leads to increased success for the child and the family. The AT EASE™ Model, developed by the PACE Place professionals, is emerging as a cutting edge paradigm that helps parents understand the emotional forces that drive behavior. The AT EASE™ Model empowers parents to develop creative problem-solving strategies and a parenting style that leads to a higher quality of life for all members of the family. There is a focus on how to transfer the success of the professionals to the parents.
Dr. Calouri has over 30 years of experience working with individuals with developmental delays and their families. With experience and training in a variety of methodologies, she has a unique perspective on how to successfully guide families within typical daily life activities (e.g., grocery shopping, bedtime routine). She focuses on fostering social-emotional development to improve the child’s ability to organize social information, develop meaningful relationships, and remediate the core deficits associated with social learning disorders. She will discuss strategies that can be used at home, in the school, and in the community, helping the child gain competence in all environments.
