This course meets the approval for Type 2 CEUs by the TX Board of OT Examiners Course Description: This intensive, hands on evidence-based four-day course addresses sensory integrative dysfunction across all ages in those with Autism spectrum, developmental and learning disorders. Participants will leave armed with new direct treatment strategies, as well as contextual interventions to assess and treat across five interdependent systems: motor, sensory, emotional-relational, communication and cognitive problem solving. Participants will learn to treat the root deficit systems instead of isolated deficit behaviors. This effective approach helps patients to show spontaneity and self-motivation to seek out increasingly positive interactions. The focus will be on tools to enhance participation by improving body awareness, postural stability/security, coordinative skill, motor planning, interest and skill with interpersonal communication, organization, and abstract reasoning for learning. Course Objectives: Participants will be able to apply course learning immediately to: • Identify and access efficacy research to justify diagnosis and treatment of SPD. • Design contextual and direct intervention strategies that enable praxis and academics (in- cluding handwriting,visual-spatial thinking, arithmetic, spelling, memorization and abstract problem-solving). • Design interventions that address developmental deficits across the five interdependent development systems. • Assess and document an individuals specific deficit area and establish goals and priorities for treatment. • Integrate interventions to establish basic attachment relationships and sensory pleasure. Develop interventions skills in ball work for SI, muscle tone and postural development. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
