The STAR PROCESS (Play-Relationship-Organize/Regulate-Collaborate-Emotional Regulation-Sensory and Speech-Success) was developed to support successful intervention that considers many areas of development. We will discuss how the PROCESS is applied within speech and language treatment. We will explore how considering relationship and regulation facilitates communication as well as the relationship between sensory processing and different areas of language development.


Learning Objectives:

  • Define the STAR PROCESS as it applies to speech and language intervention
  • Explain the role of relationship and regulation in successful speech and language intervention
  • Recognize the impact of organization and emotional regulation on foundational communication skills
  • Describe common patterns of speech and language development in individuals with sensory differences

Kris Barnekow

Being with other human beings serves developmental, evolutionary, biological and social-emotional functions. Healthy connectedness during early childhood is characterized by nurturing and responsive care during co-occupational routines. Health promoting co-occupational routines facilitate optimal developmental outcomes (Kraemer, 1992; Barnekow & Kraemer) and create a web of safety that enhances the ability of young children to co-regulate and self-regulate emotions, behavior and physiology (Barnekow & Kraemer, 2005). In therapy, we can use connectedness and co-occupation to facilitate self-regulation, school readiness and resilience (Pizur-Barnekow, 2019).

During this webinar, the second of a 2-part series, participants will learn key aspects of co-occupational engagement, and the relationship between co-occupational engagement, attachment, co-regulation and self-regulation. Additionally, participants will learn strategies to enhance relationship-based interventions utilizing early childhood mental health practices. Part 1 of the series, “Psychobiological Attachment Theory: Linking Attachment Theory to Clinical Reasoning” can be found on STAR Institute's Online Learning platform.


Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the core aspects of co-occupational engagement
  • Apply core tenets of Psychobiological Attachment Theory to the model of co-occupation as espoused by Pickens and Pizur-Barnekow
  • Recognize the importance of healthy co-occupational engagement as a means of supporting co and self-regulation
  • Apply concepts learned to a pediatric occupational therapy case scenario

About the Presenter:
Dr. Pizur-Barnekow serves as associate professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Science and Technology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. As a doctoral student, she studied under the mentorship of Dr. Gary Kraemer, author of Psychobiological Attachment Theory. The findings from her dissertation revealed that infants experience changes heart rate variability when presented with sensory stimuli that is visually and auditorily synchronous or asynchronous. In addition, the research findings identified an association between infant temperament style and maternal self-confidence and that mothers adjust their play style to support reciprocal play. These findings provided a foundation for the collaborative development of the model of co-occupation that she and Dr. Pickens disseminated in 2009, and to her subsequent interest in early childhood mental health. Since then, Dr. Pizur-Barnekow has authored or co-authored 32 papers, 9 book chapters and 70 presentations related to early childhood. In addition, she is endorsed by the Wisconsin Alliance for Infant Mental Health as an Infant and Family Specialist, serves as the CDC’s Act Early Ambassador to Wisconsin and is the founder of Families First, LLC.
