Participant will learn about the Social Thinking Curriculum and strategies to help these children navigate the social challenges in home, school and the community
This half day course is designed to help parents gain a better understanding of sensory integration and how it affects their child’s daily life. Parents will learn basic therapeutic approaches that are used to treat sensory integration dysfunction, thereby improving their child’s participation in daily life activities.
The course will be interspersed with labs to refine handling techniques that were introduced in the basic course as well as labs working on the process of integrating the material into everyday clinical practice. The class is dynamic and interactive and will require the active participation of all clinicians. PT, OT and SLP therapists are encouraged to work in multi-disciplined groups to look at breathing from all 3 discipline’s perspectives.
