Sensory Integration Intensive
May 2 @ 8:00 AM - May 5 @ 5:00 PM
This intensive, hands-on, evidence-based four-day course addresses sensory processing disorder and sensory integration intervention across all ages for those with autism spectrum, multisystem developmental, learning and behavioral disorders. Participants will leave armed with new direct treatment strategies, as well as contextual interventions to assess and treat across five interdependent systems: motor, sensory, emotional-relational, communication and cognitive problem-solving. Participants will learn to treat root deficit systems instead of isolated deficit behaviors, using a Polyvagal Theory informed treatment approach. These approaches enable patients to show regulated functional mastery with spontaneity, self-motivation while seeking out increasingly positive interactions. The focus will be on tools to enhance participation by improving relational and regulatory capacity, body awareness, postural stability/security, coordinative skill, motor planning, interest and skill with interpersonal communication, organization, and abstract reasoning for learning.
