Janice has successfully applied her teaching philosophy to clients, caregivers, special needs adults, paraprofessionals, and graduate students. Her clinical practice and teaching work reflects three aspects of a concise teaching and therapeutic intervention philosophy.
Learning and treatment environments must be inclusive. This requires the practitioner to see beyond the surface and truly develop client-centered goals, communication strategies, and methods.
Exchanges of information must be two-way. This means authoritarian approaches rarely work as well as those the client believes they have developed for themselves. The finesse of a mindful practitioner is the ability to act in the emotionally-sensitive moment when the client is ready for positive change.
Every skill and ability developed in an enhanced multi-sensory environment must be carried out and applied to natural environments. This is the only way for new learning to generalize across contexts for efficient memory retrieval through new neuronal connections developed in the brain during a process called neuroplasticity.
Do you want to bring multi-sensory environment therapy into your practice or business? Dr. Ryan can assist you in becoming certified as a practitioner, technician, or designer through American Association of Multi-Sensory Environments using mindful occupational therapy and human system dynamics thinking. She offers instruction in-person on a one-to-one basis, in small group workshops for your practice, or at ticketed conferences and seminars open to professionals.
