Sensory Integration Roadmap – Webinar
August 5, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am MST
Sensory integration sessions are, by nature, child-led. Child-led therapy can be challenging to navigate and measure, as it relies on the child’s spontaneous exploration. To support clinicians in this approach, it is helpful to have a clear framework of the neurological processes involved in sensory integration. Once you understand the “why” of the neurology you will have a clear understanding of how to plan your sessions. This course provides a comprehensive overview of sensory processing theory and practice, with a focus on how it relates to common motor challenges such as trunk weakness, balance deficits, bilateral coordination deficits and dyspraxia. By applying sensory processing principles to these areas, therapists can enhance the child’s engagement, motivation and progress. Physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists will all benefit from this course. Learning how to identify a child’s unique sensory profile and in turn, plan sessions with “just right” challenges, will translate into improved outcomes.
