Course Description:

Children with developmental delays secondary to Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) often present a more complex clinical profile.  In today’s complex health care environment with inconsistent awareness among physicians,  insurance challenges and limited resources, it  is more important than ever to be able to fully define SPD’s impact on functional skills and address them creatively in a variety of settings.

This course introduces OTs, PTs and SLPs, to use of the Analysis of Sensory Behavior Inventory in tandem with other assessments to establish a quantitative baseline of sensory driven behaviors, analysis of resulting functional deficits and use of this information to feed clinical reasoning for goals and interventions.  Participants will also explore creative approaches to multisensory therapeutic activities and their direct correlation to functional skills through PPT lecture, group discussions, video and review of itinerate friendly equipment and supplies.
