In this clinic you will learn:
•Common cognitive and developmental disabilities you may encounter as an adaptive ski instructor.
•Classes of medications commonly used by our guests with cognitive and developmental disabilities.
•How to create a progressive lesson for our guests with cognitive and developmental disabilities.
•Teaching models (such as Sensory Preferences, Teaching Styles, The Teaching Cycle and Multiple Intelligences) that may be used for instructing any guest.
•How to incorporate Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Guest-Centered Teaching concepts into your lessons to make them effective and satisfying for all of your guests.
In each class, we discuss the skiing, teaching, and technical skills that are evaluated against PSIA National Standards. While this clinic is designed as a preparatory clinic for those taking their Level 1 & 2 Cognitive/Visually Impaired Exam, anyone who wants to enhance their Cognitive lessons can benefit from this clinic.
Format: This clinic utilizes a web-hosted service for online video conferencing. Prior to each week’s class, you are given a link and a password for the online meeting. You can use either a desktop or mobile device to connect to the meeting and you can receive audio via computer or phone. The presentation and video are shown via sharing of the instructor’s desktop. Throughout each class, there are discussions and online questions to encourage participation. Note: You must be present for all 3 classes in order to receive PSIA credit.
