Sensory Integration Based Intervention for Adolescents and Adults with Disabilities

 

Course Description:

This course will provide a foundation for treatment of sensory integration and praxis difficulties in adults and adolescents with various disabilities such as autism, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, and multiple disabilities. Interventions for sensory modulation and discrimination problems, praxis difficulties and foundational postural skills in the adult/ adolescent population will be presented. The relationship of sensory integration intervention to comorbid difficulties in persons with multiple disabilities will be addressed. Discussion will also address sensory integrative interventions for acting out, self-stimulatory and self-abusive behaviors. Development of sensory diet programs for this population will also be addressed. Extensive videotape analysis and case study presentations will be used to develop observational skills. The course format, a combination of lecture, videotapes, and small group discussion allows for opportunities to address participant’s’ questions and concerns.

 

Level:  Intermediate

Contact Hours:  13 hours
