Sensory Integration Therapy for Early Intervention
Sensory integration starts before birth! Once the child is born, incorporating sensory-rich experiences is vital to a child’s development. This is especially important for children with developmental or physical disabilities. Research shows that early intervention has a positive impact, especially for children born prematurely. This 2-hour course targets early intervention occupational therapists working in the clinic or home setting. The presenter provides new treatment activity ideas including preparatory activities, sensory strategies to target a vast array of occupation-based skill sets, and ideas for parent training.
