Course Description:
Gen Z is the first generation to grow up with smart technology. The use of screens is not just impacting social skills and human interaction, it’s compromising neurosensory development!

As learning and leisure time becomes increasingly screen-based, children are over-using their visual systems at the expense of exploring the environment and activating their senses for learning through movement. While the impact of screens on social interactions and self-esteem are being increasingly recognized, clinicians and educators need to understand the potential implications as it relates to neurosensory development.

As clinicians and educators, we are equipped with many programs and interventions based on neurodevelopmental principles. Now, we need to apply them in the context of an increasingly digital world.

Treating requires a new framework to ensure we activate the senses for learning and model the habits of success. This is especially true for children with ADHD, Autism, LD, sensory processing, and motor deficits, who, at baseline, require more opportunities for multi-sensory integration to increase attention and enhance brain development for learning than their neurotypical peers.

In this program, you will enhance your existing therapeutic techniques to:
Determine a child’s digital and sensory-learning profile to inform treatment planning
Identify the influence of smart technology and screen time on neuroplasticity in children with ADHD, LD, Autism, and SPD
Rebalance the brain-body connection through controlled activation of multiple senses
Optimize connection and cognition while supporting recovery from dysregulation and digital overload
Instill the habits of success: mindset, state regulation, and movement

Objectives:
• Determine at least 3 generational challenges impacting neurosensory development in a digital generation of learners.
• Summarize the role of sensory triads in adaptive behavioral and motor responses.
• Design a treatment plan outline to support state regulation and the brain-body connection while promoting recovery from screen time and skill demands.
• Apply clinical reasoning to guide treatment-based on neurosensory patterns of children with ADHD, LD, and Autism.
• Outline 4-5 strategies you can implement immediately to empower this generation of learners while optimizing intervention and support strategies.
• Implement a school-wide model for empowering a digital generation.
