(Jenny's presentation) had a lot of practical examples and great ideas! Very motivating!
- Examine sensory processing disorder characteristics as well as current research in this field
- Discuss practical sensory interventions that can be implemented into daily routines
- Discover how evidenced-based Ready S.E.T. Go! Learn to Move, Move to Learn (AAPC 2004) program, facilitates readiness skills for motor, sensory, language, cognitive and social development
- Understand neurological differences in the brains of children with ASD and how this impacts functional daily living skills
In this session:
Attendees will gain insight into the puzzling aspects of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and learn sensory strategies targeting the needs of individuals with ASD. Concepts of sensory processing disorder (SPD) will be discussed in relation to its impact on motor coordination, language skills and social interactions of children with ASD. Current research will be reviewed in order to examine brain differences between children with ASD and their neurotypical peers, and to determine effective sensory interventions.
