Is it Sensory? Or is it Behavior? Assessment and Intervention Tools for OT's, PT's and SLP's
Course Dates: May 19-20, 2017
Location: Canton, MA
This workshop will focus on the underlying causes of challenging behavior that impact performance and functional outcomes. Clinicians will learn how to differentiate between the sensory processing problems and the behavioral/emotional problems in order to develop an integrated approach to intervention. We will specifically address visual and vestibular processing disorders that impact social skills and school performance as the key to designing effective, integrated treatment for improved sensory processing, motor skills and behavior. This course will create a paradigm shift and give participants a "new lens" with which they can assess clients. Participants will learn to assess the subtle motor and sensory deficits that may be contributing to attention, learning, motor and behavioral challenges, and most importantly, will learn concrete contextual strategies as well as treatment techniques to apply immediately. Collaborative and consultative approaches will be highlighted to promote function, participation and engagement. Patient Population: Autism, PDD, Developmental Delays, Sensory Processing Disorders and ADHD Infancy through Adult.
