Building Blocks for Sensory Integration – International Online Course

October 7 - October 9

| $400
International Online Course
Course Taught in English with Simultaneous Translation into Spanish

This three-day, experiential course provides therapists with an in-depth understanding of the developmental and neuro-physiological links between sensory integration and the basic primary movement patterns that provide the foundation (or building blocks) for sensory modulation and integration.

Beginning with support of the primitive reflexes, we will explore the development of posture and its relationship to gross and fine motor skills along with visual and auditory function. This course will allow participants to fine tune their clinical observation skills for the clients who are often difficult to test using standard measures.

Hands-on demonstrations, movement labs, and video examples will highlight treatment strategies that can be implemented with and without therapy equipment, making them appropriate for all clinical settings. A range of intervention strategies designed to support functional performance will be presented, and attendees will leave with a systematic way to assess, document and treat the movement challenges that arise from the lack of effective sensory motor integration.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the link between reflex integration, postural development, sensory motor integration, and behavioral challenges.
  • Evaluate primitive and postural reflex development, and identify its impact on daily function.
  • Design simple yet powerful strategies for integration across multiple environments.

Course Materials

Each participant is recommended to bring a yoga mat/towel and gym ball (appropriately sized to allow you to sit at 90/90), if available.
