Tuesday, December 8, 2020   10am-12pm EST

What to Expect from the Training:

Attendees will learn how to understand the patterns of behavior/ and adaptive response challenges with children with sensory processing disorders and related diagnoses.

Attendees will learn how to observe and recognize key aspects of sensory processing deficits as they overlap with behaviors and impact learning.

We will also discuss strategies to review the scope and limitations of school-based testing when requesting an OT IEE.

By the end of the presentation, you will have tools to advocate for why a child may need a sensory based OT IEE that expands beyond a Sensory Profile or Sensory Processing Measure rating form to guide IEP goals/objectives and intervention planning.

Additional strategies and experiential learning of possible movement interventions that expand on traditional sensory diets to address the core underlying sensory integration deficits using the Body Activated LearningTM framework will be introduced as an additional resource for parents but also to help you understand the key components of optimizing a sensory diet especially during COVID and distance learning.
