Sensory AND Behavior: Determining the Underlying Causes and Addressing Difficult Behaviors Appropriately
When difficult behaviors arise in children with sensory processing disorders, we often ask ourselves whether the behaviors are sensory OR behavioral in nature. However, experience shows us that the answer is usually both—sensory AND behavioral. This 2-hour webinar includes a framework for wholistic intervention, research to support this approach, and tools to get started right away.
