Oren Steinberg: Empowering Parents with Home Programs - Sensory Treat
Scroll down for the podcast and links to all good things discussed in the interview
Oren Steinberg is the founder and chairperson of Sensory Treat, a revolutionary programme that supports therapists and parents to work together in creating home exercise programmes for children with sensory processing difficulties. Oren comes from a background of tech, currently working for a healthcare and technology company on a mission to make clinical genetic sequencing more accessible to physicians and patients, but his super power is that he is a dad that has walked the walk - and has his own personal journey of being a parent of a child on the therapy treadmill and what it means to actually be successful as parent at implementing therapy with your own kids at home - and what we as therapists can do to help with that. I really enjoyed our chat - it gave me a lot of food for thought and I know you are going to get a lot out of it too - enjoy!
