Description: Many therapists today who use a sensory integration-based intervention approach travel from one work setting to another.  This may include school therapists, those working in early intervention or in private practice. Therapists frequently need to transport equipment from one work setting to another in order to provide the services they would like. What equipment should therapists have available?  What tools are readily transportable yet be useful for sensory integration-based intervention?  This webinar will provide therapists with equipment and activity ideas that are essential materials to be “in the bag” or “in the car” for every traveling therapist who wants to use a sensory-based approach to intervention.

Objectives:

Following this session, participants will be able to: 

  1. Identify 5 essential pieces of equipment to treat sensory needs which may be carried “in the bag” by therapists.
  2. List at least 5 sensory-based activities which can be implemented using transportable equipment.
  3. Describe 3 ways to creatively use existing space and materials to promote sensory integration-based intervention.
