        Seminars@Hadley Presents: Have You Looked in the Kitchen Drawer? (A 
Process/Sensory Approach to Rehabilitation)

        Date: Tuesday, April 17, 2012

        Time: 10:00 AM CDT, 15:00 GMT
        We all need to be equipped with a set of techniques for performing 
skills common to clusters of life activities no matter what task or tasks we 
need to perform. This presentation introduces participants to a sensory/process 
approach to instruction known as “the kitchen drawer” model of rehabilitation. 
Join Seminars@Hadley as Lighthouse of the Big Bend Vocational Rehabilitation 
Specialist Lynda Jones demonstrates how to acquire a “kitchen drawer” full of 
skills one can transfer from one task to another across the lifespan.

        At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to:

          a.. Explain key words (process, skill, task, informed choice, least 
restrictive adaptation) that lay the foundation for this model of instruction. 
          b.. Define the eleven sensory systems and give examples of activities 
for teaching consumers how to use the senses when performing tasks. 
          c.. Describe the four categories of the “kitchen drawer” model of 
rehabilitation and give examples of each as well as how to incorporate sensory 
development into the model. 
          d.. Develop a short task analysis for a given task using sensory 
systems to describe the adaptations. 
          e.. Explain the psychological benefits of this model of 
        This 60 minute seminar will be moderated by Hadley’s Outreach
