Solutions for Sensory Related Behavior

Course Chapters & Learning Objectives:

Examine neuroscience research for sensory processing disorder (SPD).

Discuss characteristics and symptoms of the six SPD subtypes.

Implement effective sensory strategies for alerting, modulating and calming.

Course Description

This course examines the six subtypes of sensory processing disorder (SPD) and distinguishes sensory related behavior for modulations disorder, which impacts regulation and attention, sensory-based motor disorder, which impacts success with functional motor coordination tasks, and sensory discrimination disorder, which impacts academic learning. Current SPD neuroscience research will be examined for evidence-based practices in SPD. Learners will develop a repertoire of practical and easy-to-implement sensory strategies they can use immediately with children.
