Course Description: This workshop will focus on the underlying causes of challenging behavior that impact performance and functional outcomes. Clinicians will learn how to differentiate between the sensory processing problems and the behavioral/emotional problems in order to develop an integrated approach to intervention. We will specifically address visual and vestibular processing disorders that impact social skills and school performance as the key to designing effective, integrated treatment for improved sensory processing, motor skills and behavior. This course will create a paradigm shift and give participants a “new lens” with which they can assess clients. Participants will learn to assess the subtle motor and sensory deficits that may be contributing to attention, learning, motor and behavioral challenges, and most importantly, will learn concrete contextual strategies as well as treatment techniques to apply immediately. Collaborative and consultative approaches will be highlighted to promote function, participation and engagement. Patient Population: Autism, PDD, Developmental Delays, Sensory Processing Disorders and ADHD Infancy through Adult. Course Objectives: Participants will be able to apply course learning immediately to: • Analyze the role of sensory processing in the development of attention, social skills and visual perception. • Identify subtle signs of visual-vestibular and other sensory-motor dysfunction. • Apply integrated assessment techniques and how to develop measurable school and/ or clinic based goals • Identify red flags that warrant referral to a behavioral vision specialist. • Develop effective treatment protocols for the clinic, home and school. • Implement strategies for sharing information with parents and teachers for optimal outcomes.

Catherine Wollman, is an expert in the field of geriatrics. Join her for a day filled with interesting case studies, insightful discussion and interactive learning. Leave with practical techniques you can apply the next day. Course Objectives: • Assess behavioral problems of older adults with cognitive disturbances. • Consider the advantages of recognition and treatment of early dementia. • Incorporate non-pharmacologic interventions that address biopsychosocial needs of the older adult with challenging behaviors. • Implement specific communication strategies for patients with challenging behaviors. • Analyze evidence-based pharmacologic treatments of behavioral problems in patients. • Determine interventions for challenging geriatric behaviors including pain, nutritional deficits, sleep disorders, depression and delirium. • Evaluate causes and interventions for sexually inappropriate behaviors. • Support and educate family and professional caregivers of older adults exhibiting challenging behaviors.
