Description: Many children with challenges processing and integrating sensory information also have difficulties with self-regulation. There are numerous approaches to addressing self-regulation challenges from sensory integration to cognitive behavioral therapies. For most occupational therapists a combined approach is most effective. The use of sensory strategies with social communication approaches, development of client-therapist rapport and interpersonal transactional approaches may best facilitate development of client’s self-regulation abilities. These strategies may be used with clients with a variety of diagnoses and levels of functioning and may be implemented in diverse intervention settings from telehealth to clinical and school settings. This webinar will present sensory, social communication and transactional support strategies that occupational therapy practitioners may use to support client intervention for self-regulation across practice settings.


Following this session, participants will be able to: 

  1. State 3 social communication approaches to use to support development of self-regulation.
  2. Describe 3 transactional support strategies to use to facilitate development of self-regulation.
  3. State 2 ways that self-regulation strategies may be applied in varied practice settings.
