Do you have difficulty getting “engagement making” a connection? Do you find play and motor skills limited and or perseverative? Are you encountering self-stimulatory behaviors and not sure what they mean? Do your students just want to “watch”? Are you exhausted at the end of some sessions? Join us as we focus on motor skills in ASD and evidence-based interventions that address motor as well as coexisting social and communicative challenges. For decades, autism has been defined as a triad of deficits in social interaction, communication, and imaginative play. Children on the autistic spectrum may have difficulties with posture, coordination, and motor planning. Recent studies show that movement difficulties are common in children on the autistic spectrum, and poor motor skills are associated with greater difficulties with social communication. Participation in activities, building relationships, and reciprocal communication require neurological systems to coordinate and synchronize the processing, organization, and regulation of sensory information and movement. Differences in body awareness and motor planning can result in avoidance of, or poor response to, many activities that support motor development. Anxiety, self regulatory and sensory processing challenges often respond to movement activities which enhance brain-body feedback for successful and organized engagement. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course the therapist will: • Identify at least three common motor challenges in children with ASD • Describe the relationship between sesnsory processing, body awareness, and atypical motor performance • Identify and apply two motor activities (based on research) to support engagement and motor skills development • Describe the movement feedback challenges in ASD • Identify and apply at least two preparatory routines to address fear and withdrawal from motor activities Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
