The Pennsylvania Association for Infant Mental Health’s Central Region members held a networking breakfast on Friday in Penn College's early childhood education lab. A highlight of the gathering was the presentation, “Sensory Processing: Separating Fact From Fiction,” delivered by Elizabeth A. Dixon, clinical director of the college’s occupational therapy assistant program. Dedicated to supporting children under 5 and their families, the PA-AIMH Central Region’s membership comprises about 45 clinicians and practitioners from a wide range of early childhood organizations. Friday’s networking opportunity, the association’s largest event so far, was organized by PA-AIMH regional board members Jillian T. Scanlon, instructor of education and early childhood education at Penn College, and Shashi DeHaan, mental health coordinator for SUMMIT Early Learning, Mifflinburg.
