Pediatric Therapy Partners had four therapists gain additional training in working with children who have behaviors. Speech-Language Pathologist and owner Janette Venaas-Gilbraith, and Occupational Therapists Bailey Stotts, Barb Matthews and Suzy Skogen all attended the "Over 75 Quick On-The-Spot Techniques for Children and Adolescents with Emotional and Behavioral Problems" conference in Fargo. At this course they learned how to effectively utilize 75 techniques for individually treating children with behavior problems; tools and strategies specific for parents and teachers; how to develop skills for building a therapeutic relationship with difficult children and teens; and how to explain differential diagnostics regarding acting-out disorders such as anxiety, ADHD, bipolarity, oppositional defiance, conduct disorder and depression.
