Our "hybrid" version of the Level 1 Mentorship program provides the foundational course information through STAR's Online Learning platform. Participants may then opt to attend a 2-day In-Person or Live-streamed Course within 2 years to receive a Certificate of Completion and full AOTA CEUs.
Online Course Content:
11 hours of recorded course content will be made available online through STAR's Online Learning platform and is a required prerequisite for attending the 2-Day In-Person or Live-streamed portion of the program. This includes:
- Background information on sensory processing from Dr. Lucy Jane Miller

- A complete introduction and overview of each of the Subtypes of SPD
- Sensory Modulation Disorder
- Sensory Discrimination Disorder
- Overview of standardized assessments: Understanding standards scoring systems and "growth scales" based on Rasch measurement
