This course will provide the participants with a tool for assessing areas such as sleep, sensory processing challenges and nutrition as it relates to function. Recognizing the underlying issues contributing to dysfunction, provides the key to designing strategies that prove successful.

Making improvements in these areas, is often the key to designing effective treatment for creating permanent improvements in sensory processing, motor skills and behavior in children with a variety of diagnoses.

Participants will be learn how to recognize sleep, nutritional and sensory processing concerns. They will also learn how to prioritize interventions and present the information to families to develop successful programs.
