Learn to Move, Move to Learn: Evidence-Based Neuroscience Foundations in Sensory Processing Disorder

Research reveals that 1 in 6 children have sensory processing disorder (SPD). Current evidence in sensory processing points to a neurological basis for this disorder.

This epidemic of SPD in the pediatric population creates challenges for therapists and educators in providing effective intervention and support for children and their families. Professionals need adequate training on the neuroscience foundations of SPD to understand why sensory driven behavior occurs and how to effectively address this disorder. In this seminar we will explore details of Ayres Sensory Integration (ASI®) as well as evidence-based practices for sensory integration intervention.

Join Jenny L. Clark, OTR/L, BCP, in this exciting and informative workshop filled with creative and useful sensorimotor interventions that can be easily implemented in the classroom, clinic, or at home to help children with success in childhood occupations. Participants will glean information about how to implement creative curriculum for early intervention, preschool and elementary school children. Attendees will discover how to design sensorimotor theme-based lesson plans that can be implemented immediately. Ms. Clark’s unique play-based treatment approach for children incorporates sensorimotor theme activities that facilitate development to enhance learning. Video examples, case studies, and lab experiences will enrich participants’ learning
