About the Session:

Hosted in partnership with Peace Collaborative Services

This two-day workshop will provide clinicians with enhanced evaluation and intervention skills in the sensory treatment of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This dynamic learning opportunity will aid therapists in the fine tuning of their clinical reasoning, analysis skills and intervention methods through a variety of learning modalities. Through video analysis and live demonstrations, therapists will have the opportunity to observe and problem solve the nuances of sensory processing intervention, attachment relationship intervention and arousal based management for children with Autism. Participants must have a working knowledge of the behavioural manifestations of ASD and a beginning understanding of sensory processing theory.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to:

  • identify 5 sensory contributions to behavioural challenges and emotional dysregulation.
  • identify 2 aspects of relationship that are used as a therapeutic tools in the treatment of autism.
  • implement 3 treatment techniques and/or sensory strategies to assist clients with autism in modulating arousal and learning self-regulation.
  • accurately synthesize 3 sensory contributions to the aspects of autism related to motor dysfunction.
  • develop a repertoire of 5-6 sensory strategies to enhance motor skills through alteration of the environment and therapeutic intervention of the autistic client.

Lunch included.
