Children with Sensory Processing Disorders, ADHD or autism have much in common. They are challenged with physical problems that affect their ability to focus and can also cause them to be emotionally reactive. Children who have trouble self-regulating throughout the day are missing out on typical childhood experiences in school, on the playground and with their families. They have difficulty making and keeping friends.

This workshop looks at the underlying factors of poor self-regulation and how they affect the child. The course emphasizes practical interventions! You will walk away with details on how to create simple but effective programs in clinical, school and home settings:

•Sensory therapy techniques
•Simple self-management and video modeling programs
•Sensory diets
•Social stories
•Energy regulation techniques
•Communication methods
•Transition strategies

Clinical programs such as Interactive Metronome®, Sound Therapy, and Neuro-Feedback will be discussed, as will timely topics such as medication vs. non-medication for ADHD and the bio-medical approach controversy in autism. You will receive written handouts and a list of resources.


•Summarize characteristics of sensory processing disorder, ADHD and autism and how they overlap.
•Utilize specific treatments for SPD that can be duplicated at school or home.

•Provide examples of elements of successful social stories and transitional activities.
