This course teaches practical applications of specific evaluation and treatment techniques for the treatment of modulation dysfunction and includes useful information and specific interventions to target the source of the difficulties. This course will give participants the tools to treat a wide range of students with sensory processing challenges, including children with autistic spectrum disorders (Autism, PDD, Asperger’s), ADD/ADHD and the lower functioning children who are difficult to reach because of behavioral issues and overt sensory processing deficits. We will also address children in a typical educational setting who exhibit sensory seeking and avoiding behaviors. Participants will learn to identify the systems at play and evaluate the reasons for the behaviors that are causing functional difficulties, in order to treat the problem from the cause to reduce behaviors that get in the way of function. For the intermediate-level therapist.
