Sensory Integration Intensive is organized by Education Resources, Inc. (ERI) and will be held from May 14 - 17, 2020 at P G Chambers School, Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, United States of America. CEU Details: This course meets the criteria for 27 contact hours (2.7 CEU’s). 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. 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.

Description: A lab-based course teaching treatment strategies, handling techniques, and achievable goals for children with severe physical limitations, with or without cognitive impairments, in clinical settings, home care, school-based practice, and hospitals. Treating children with severe physical impairments, with or without cognitive impairments presents unique challenges. This course is designed for physical, occupational and speech-language pathologists who work with this population and want to expand their skills. We will explore the challenges of working in various settings and how to set treatment priorities for each setting. We will discuss realistic, functional goal setting and how to work to make goals achievable. We will explore dosing for this population who require lifelong service and how to build in carryover when not in active treatment. Practical labs working with an adult partner and doll will reinforce treatment concepts. Objectives: • The student will be able to set functional, achievable goals for a child with severe impairments • The student will be able to understand the role of standardized testing and the evaluation process for this population • The student will be able to identify system impairments that may interfere with function • The student will be able to identify at least 3 physical problems that can affect the child as an adult • The student will be able to demonstrate 3 treatment strategies for treatment of the child with severe impairments Topics to be covered: • Classification systems that are relevant to the child with severe impairments • The evaluation process • Functional goal setting • Treatment interventions based on system impairments • Major challenges that occur across the lifespan

Course Description: Learn to most effectively treat children and adolescents with complex behavioral, sensory integration, TBI, Autism Spectrum (DSM-V-TR associated diagnoses), cognitive limitations, PTSD, and other developmental challenges using a new approach synthesizing behavioral, sensory integration, handling, mindfulness, activity, music, and developmental strategies. This hands-on lab course emphasizes practical evidence-based techniques integrating Positive Behavioral Support, Mindfulness, Therapeutic Movement, NDT, Neuropsychology, Sensory Integration, and sensory massage. Participants are armed with ready-to-go techniques. All participants receive reproducible, customizable copies of activities and strategies for home and school use. Emphasis will be placed on implementing new transdisciplinary intervention. Labs will improve participants’ effectiveness when sharing practical information and clinical research learned in this course with other therapists, parents and teachers. This course is designed for occupational, speech, physical, and mental health therapists as well as special educators, psychiatrists, and other professionals seeking to improve functional outcomes with children 3 to 21 years old. Participants will be able to apply course learning immediately to: • Assess and differentiate sensory integration and behavioral problems in infants, children, and adolescents. • Apply the assessment of sensory integration and behavioral problems to develop objective goals and apply appropriate intervention strategies (both contextual and direct) addressing each childs individual behavioral and/or sensory integration challenges. • Train teachers and therapists to effectively combine practical sensory integration, mindfulness, trauma informed, and behavioral strategies. • Use the FAB Trigger and Coping Forms to identify the most problematic environmental and body triggers for each child and the most effective coping strategies to promote self-regulation. • Implement advanced strategies for managing sensory integration and behavior problems (e.g., inattention, interrupting, screaming, swearing, kicking, biting, and hitting) during individual and group treatment sessions. • Learn to quickly develop home programs using the included forms (FAB: Activity Strategies to Promote Self-control, Pressure Touch, Environmental Adaptation, and Oral Sensory Strategies) for follow-up intervention across the childs school, OPD, hospital and home settings.
