Sensory Brain Development: Critical Information and Science Based Approaches You Need to Know


Course Description

Therapists today face an ever-growing challenge of providing effective interventions for special-needs children, including those with neurodevelopmental delays, autism spectrum disorders and sensory processing issues. Standard treatment interventions approach these challenges from “behaviors-in,” without addressing the underlying neurological dysfunctions that may be driving delayed or incomplete sensory motor processing.
“Sensory Brain Development” provides therapists with critical information about embryological development, the scientific rationale behind our developmental interventions, and science-based approaches that best serve our needs as clinicians while facilitating optimal body-brain-behavior outcomes in the pediatric population. Therapists explore the neurological grounding of autonomic function to enhance self-regulation, learn to identify common wiring dysfunctions to appropriately tailor their interventions, and acquire important treatment strategies for neurodevelopmental or sensory dysfunction patients of all ages, including the 0-3 population. Parent and caregiver needs are also addressed, with simple strategies and resources provided for optimal support and family success.
