Discover the underlying impact of sensory processing difficulties for children/adults with autism spectrum disorders. A new model of development (The Brain Library™) gives you a way of understanding how the nervous system relies on basic sensory foundations for more complex skills. Early signs of sensory processing difficulties that may be linked to autism will be more recognizable. The latest brain research supports using sensory integration theory as a lens for viewing specific behavioral, learning and social challenges. Take home sensory strategies to aid children with autism for increased success academically and socially.

This information is crucial since more than 90% of children with autism are documented as having sensory processing difficulties as well. It is imperative that you get the tools you need to help children with autism work through the sensory-related difficulties since these difficulties may hinder a child from success in other areas. This means that interns, psychologists in private practice, teachers, speech pathologists, families and all people working with children should understand and learn to recognize the sensory needs of the children/adults who have autism spectrum disorder.

Explain how early sensory-motor experiences are stored in the brain.
Describe the latest brain research on autism spectrum disorders and how these findings impact the way therapists and educators work with children/adults.
List the components of sensory integration and sensory processing difficulties common to children with a diagnosis of autism.
Examine how early experiences may be perceived differently for children with autism due to brain differences.
Summarize how underlying sensory processing difficulties impact learning, behavior and social skills.
Assess how sensory processing, environmental and communication issues influence learning and behavior.
Outline specific strategies that can be used when working with children/adults with autism spectrum disorders.
