Sensory Integration Intensive
Education Resources, Inc.
Format(s): Live Seminars
Discipline(s): Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy / Speech-Language
Contact Hours: 25
Registration Fee: $755
Participants will be able to:
Discuss how developmental deficits disrupt
function across five interdependent
developmental parameters (sensory, motor,
emotional-relational, cognitive, communicative)
and lead to dysfunctional response.
Describe how effective intervention needs to
address all five systems concomitantly.
Develop interventions that address all five
Document an individual specific deficit area
in order to establish goals and objectives.
Discuss how to establish basic attachment
relationships and sensory pleasure which
precedes interest, attention, exploration and
learning enthusiasm in a student.
Develop intervention skills in ball work for SI,
muscle tone and postural development.
Design intervention strategies to support
sensory integration enabling self-regulation,
body awareness, and postural control which
precedes and enables praxis and subsequently

arithmetic, spelling, memorization and abstract

This intensive, hands on evidence-based four-day course addresses sensory integrative dysfunction across all ages in those with Autism spectrum, developmental and learning disorders. Participants will leave armed with new strategies to assess and treat across five interdependent systems: motor, sensory, emotional-relational, communication and cognitive problem solving. Participants will learn to treat the root deficit systems instead of isolated deficit behaviors. This effective approach helps patients to show spontaneity and self-motivation to seek out increasingly positive interactions. The focus will be on tools to improve body awareness, postural stability/security, coordinative skill, motor planning, interest and skill with interpersonal communication, organization, and abstract reasoning for learning.
