Dr. Camp’s course goes deep into not only providing person-centered practices but letting each person function at their highest optimum level. The Montessori approach supports all people as adults who have much more capability than often given credit.
How many times have you witnessed people in a craft or cooking program and the staff or others are doing everything versus letting the attendees complete the task at their level? How many times have you seen ball toss as the only activity? How many times have you witnessed support professionals and family members feeding people who could feed themselves, if provided finger foods or adaptive devices?
This is a required course for those interested in the CMDCP certification with ICCDP. The course is also open to others who would like to learn from Dr. Camp. CMDCP application information will be provided in class. For those who are interested in CMDCP certification, the ICCDP is offering all attendees a large application discount. The fee is reduced to $35 from $270. You must attend the entire course to receive a certificate of attendance.
