Courses and Podcasts
The SpIRiT© (Sensory processing/Integration Reasoning interactive Tool) is a mindful clinical reasoning tool for ensuring best practice in pediatric occupational therapy.
The SpIRiT introduces a clinical reasoning framework for combining sensory, affective, and motor (SAM) processing into a relationship-based, sensory integrative model of intervention. This introduction course to The SpIRiT© will focus on integrating SENSORY processing with motor and affective processing. It will also highlight the importance of reflective clinical reasoning as a way of practice. This online course will consist of pre-recorded videos, integration of knowledge activities, and resources to support learners as they embark on their learning journey at their own pace.

Hanen More Than Words
DFX is excited to offer the Hanen “More Than Words” program via telehealth in spring 2022, led by our speech-language pathologist, Hannah Mellman!
What is Hanen “More Than Words”?
Created specifically for parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, or other social communication difficulties, the More Than Words® Program provides caregivers with practical strategies for addressing your child’s specific needs, and building their communication and social skills during everyday routines and play.
This initial course will be offered at no cost to families thanks to support from Developmental Pathways.
Fragile X Academy
The Fragile X Academy will provide training series for parents, caregivers, therapy providers, and school teams that promote a deeper understanding of Fragile X syndrome and best practices for ‘living and learning the Fragile X way.’ We are offering the initial course free of charge.
In Part 1, Tracy provides a brief overview of Fragile X syndrome and an introduction to the benefits of using care mapping to promote comprehensive, Fragile X informed care. In the second video, viewers have the opportunity to watch as Tracy and Karen walk through the care mapping process in relation to Karen’s son with Fragile X syndrome.
We hope you find this information valuable and we look forward to adding more courses to The Fragile X Academy later this year.
