Join Teresa Garland, MOT, OTR/L, author and expert on sensory and modulation issues and learn cutting-edge interventions for satisfying sensory cravings and sensitivities in children (2-16 years) with autism and sensory modulation issues.
In the first portion of this seminar, you will learn an effective step-by-step protocol that significantly decreases autism symptoms through the use of 15 sensory enrichment interventions. You will come away with exercises that help children attend to, register and tolerate temperature, touch, sound, vision and vestibular activities. The protocol can be done at home, in school or during early intervention classes. The individual exercises can be used to help solve specific issues.
In the second portion of this seminar, the focus is on immersion in sensation with four different types of interventions:
- Desensitization of sound, textures and taste/smell
- Activities using crafts and games that calm sensitivities and satisfy cravings
- Story-based intense movement routines for all ages that “significantly” help with classroom performance
- Cognitive activities to help children reframe their sensory experiences
Dozens of new activities to use with your clients and students will be shown with videos and live demos.
