42 Winter Street

Suite 25

Pembroke, MA 02359


Course Description:


This two-day, experiential course provides therapists with an in-depth understanding of the developmental and neurophysiological links between sensory integration and the basic primary movement patterns that provide the foundation (or building blocks) for sensory modulation and integration.


Beginning with support of the primitive reflexes, we will explore the development of posture and its relationship to gross and fine motor skills along with visual and auditory function. This course will allow participants to fine tune their clinical observation skills for the clients who are often difficult to test using standard measures.


Hands-on demonstrations, movement labs, and video examples will highlight treatment strategies that can be implemented with and without therapy equipment, making them appropriate for all clinical settings. A range of intervention strategies designed to support functional performance will be presented, and attendees will leave with a systematic way to assess, document and treat the movement challenges that arise from the lack of effective sensory motor integration.


Registration includes the Therapy Ball Bundle (1 Gertie Ball & 1 Power Up Ball), which will be provided at the course.  This course is approved to offer AOTA & ASHA CEUs.  Participants receive 13.0 contact hours for completing this course.
