Pre-Recorded One Hour Webinar - POWER Play
Stop spending countless hours trying to plan creative,
meaningful, evidence based sessions and
POWER up your pediatric OT sessions to create more bang for your treatment buck with our one hour introductory webinar
As a pediatric OT you are already likely using exercise within your treatment sessions...
You know things like “scooter board activities in prone can increase shoulder stability”
BUT when it comes to exercise as a treatment strategy, did you know you’re also able to use this same piece of equipment in novel, different ways to target core contraction, shoulder stability, dynamic balance proprioception and vestibular input… all at the same time?
It all comes down to knowing how to POWER up your exercises using Performance and Occupation based Workouts for Exercise and Regulation – in a way that your kiddos will actually get excited about.
Which is exactly what I’m here to teach you how to do.
Your blueprint for harnessing the power of high intensity exercise and play in an OT setting to build strength, increase confidence, enhance self-regulation, and improve functional outcomes in your pediatric clients.

During this 1 hour pre-recorded workshop, I’ll teach you how to empower your kiddos through playful movement in these four ways:
Target core strength, balance, motor planning and upper body strength- to improve motor skills and build endurance and activity tolerance for academics and daily living activities.
Target vestibular, proprioceptive and tactile processing- to decrease reactivity to sensory stimuli and to facilitate improved self-regulation for successful performance in daily occupations.
Build motor confidence with “just right” physical challenges for each child, and support social participation using strategies and organic opportunities for adult guided social pragmatics.
Foster lifelong friendships and a sense of safety and belonging for kiddos and their families.
Plus, you’ll walk away with a better understanding the ways high intensity exercise can impact sensory processing as well as strategies for easily incorporating it into your treatment sessions using common OT equipment in brand new ways – all bundled up with theme based stories for maximum engagement.
Hi, I’m Amy
Or Dr Amy Wheadon, OTD, OTR/L if you want to get ‘official’
I’ve been a runner and weight lifter for the past 25 years, an OT who has practiced in pediatrics for more than 20 years, and for the last 15 years, I’ve also gone by the title of Mom.
And, I am an adult with sensory processing differences.
About a decade ago I made the connection that high intensity exercise (running and lifting weights) helped improve my sensory processing. Working out helped me to feel focused, productive, calmer, more comfortable in my own skin, and generally just a happier person…
Noticing the impact it had on me, I started incorporating exercise as a primary change agent within my practice and recognized that the kiddos were demonstrating similar outcomes.
This inspired me to infuse my love of exercise with my passion as a pediatric OT to create, design & research the ExerSHINE Kids Power Bootcamp Program
Once we started researching the program, we found astounding measurable results, which backed up what me, my team, and countless parents, teachers and professionals were already noticing…
Things like significant measurable improvements in
- tactile processing
- body awareness
- balance and motion
- praxis and planning
- ADL performance
- IADL performance
- Increased focus for peer interactions & social participation
And because I’m an experienced pediatric OT I know how to artfully combine exercises with meaningful child friendly themes for maximum engagement and participation!
Now I want to share this with you!JOIN POWER PLAY TO SEE THIS PHILOSOPHY IN ACTION!
POWER PLAY is the key to powering up your treatment repertoire by:
Discovering the magic of playful theming and storytelling to engage kiddos in a meaningful way that ensures they are having so much fun they don’t even realize how much they’re working
Unlocking the hidden benefits of high intensity exercise as a change agent to give you more bang-for-your-treatment-buck with your pediatric OT clients
Learning new ways to use common equipment differently to activate the proprioceptive, vestibular, and tactile systems
Exploring the use of high intensity exercise as a treatment strategy for sensory processing challenges
POWER Play isn’t just about getting kids to do more exercise …
It’s about HOW you engage them.
It’s about seeing exercise for more than just its health & wellness outcomes
It’s about providing functional, easily accessible treatment strategies for OTs, their patients and their families that can support them throughout their entire lifespan.DISCOVER THE POWER PLAY WAY
