Sensational Babies: Meeting Sensory Needs in Early Intervention

Sensory Processing Disorder and Autism are now recognized earlier in development than ever before. Early Intervention professionals must meet the sensory needs of these little ones. In addition, they learn how to help parents deal with developmental issues that arise. This 2-hour webinar discusses sensory modulation difficulties and the resulting impact on sleep, self-soothing, feeding, social interaction, speech and language development, and fine and gross motor skill development. Participants come away with resources and strategies to promote modulation and facilitate typical development. This course is included with the Early Childhood Webinar Package.
