Contact Hours:   13
Registration Fee:   $435

Upon completion of this course, you will: 1) Be able to discuss the basic principals of vestibular sensory-motor bridge system and how the nervous system organizes information. 2) Utilize assessment strategies for detection of primitive vestibular reflexes, ocular motility, vestibulocerebellar functioning, sensory discrimination and motor sequencing. 3) Implement effective intervention strategies using vestibuloproprioceptive-tactile system combined with auditory and ocular inputs, projected action sequencing and spatial-temporal perception.

Target Audience
Occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech language pathologists, assistants, special educators and other professionals who work with children with sensory processing disorders.

The focus of this course is to learn effective treatment strategies that are designed to help individuals with sensory processing disorders (SPED) lead full and productive lives. This intensive conference will provide clinicians with dynamic state of the art intervention strategies that support integration of sensation. Presentation of current neurobiology of the vestibular system’s central role in sub-cortical and cortical intercommunication and related research are reviewed. Assessment strategies and intervention methods that are intended to: Improve sensory modulation Enhance vestibular function and postural skills Optimize social readiness Synchronize the organization and sequencing of motor skills and behavior as needed for optimal function in time and space.
