Description

Research studies have shown that sensory dysfunction symptoms are prevalent in up to 95% of those diagnosed with autism. These symptoms include difficulties coordinating sensory input into planning and executing movement effectively. Children with motor coordination difficulties are less competent at recognizing emotions in others and are more likely to have increased anxiety in common settings due to reduced social interaction. Evidence also suggests that these difficulties are present from birth and increase the risk of developing autism by age 3. This indicates that there is an impairment in the process of sensorimotor integration that plays a fundamental role in the development of autism.


This brand new one-day seminar will cover the latest evidence and bridge the gap between treatment models, practicality, and functionality. You will explore the most effective ways to facilitate learning while managing behavior, communication, sensory and social challenges that impact those with autism. Using conventional materials, the participants of this
seminar will leave with the skills and confidence to improve the lives of their clients. Using practical strategies in common situations, participants will be able to analyze therapeutic activities that focus on sensorimotor impairments and design an individualized program utilizing everyday materials and technology that can be implemented the next day.

 

Objectives

1. Explain how the brain affects and interprets motor function.
2. Assess reflexes and identify consequences of persistent reflexes.
3. Explore interventions that integrate reflex therapy for remediation of skills.
4. Identify 4 therapeutic activity interventions that would promote the development of the "5 Ps"; (Perception-Action Coupling, Proprioception, Posture, Praxis, Play)
5. Differentiate the components of dyspraxia and how it disrupts a child’s function and independence.
6. Implement executive functioning skills within treatment to promote safety awareness and improved community reintegration.
7. Utilize strategies to help shape behaviors and provide emotional support to the child that would enhance the child’s performance with activities of daily living and school related tasks.
8. Develop effective home programs and communication strategies with caregivers to improve compliance with recommendations.
