Creating Effective Performance, Precision and Power in Sensory Diets – Live Webinar with Recording

January 8

| $175

Recording Access Available!

While it appears deceptively simple, designing sensory diets is not merely following a list of predetermined activities. Creating effective and precise sensory diets requires individualized clinical reasoning based upon an understanding of the unique contributions of the sensory systems, the defensive-orienting continuum, sensory modulation, and arousal regulation.

Join Julia Wilbarger and Sheila Frick as they share their unique perspectives on creating and implementing sensory diets from a neurodevelopmental and sensorimotor perspective. Course content will be applicable across practice settings to support individuals of all ages who experience difficulties with sensory processing limiting occupational participation and well-being. This practical, interactive course will immediately support and reinforce successful application of these concepts in clinical practice and home environments.

Take an additional discount of $15 per participant for groups of 3 or more individuals enrolling simultaneously under the same web-order.

  • Describe at least three developmental components and/or sensorimotor foundations of posture and breath.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of selected sensorimotor activities on an individual’s state regulation and modulation using key clinical observations (respiratory patterns and core activation) through three case study/video examples.
  • Identify at least four principles or unique quality considerations for designing individualized sensory diets.
