A sensory diet, a term coined by Patricia Wilbarger, is a specifically selected activity regime that is used for treatment of Sensory Defensiveness, as well as, for difficulties with arousal regulation and sensory modulation. This one-day course will discuss how to create powerful sensory diets precisely tailored to each client’s unique clinical picture. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of each sensory system and their unique contribution to overall regulation of arousal and affect. Clinical discussions, ignited by case examples, will reveal the key observational skills necessary to assess the impact of sensory diet activities on core and breath activation. Hands-on treatment labs will be included throughout the course to provide participants with an opportunity to practice critical observation skills necessary to determine the effectiveness of each activity selection.

- Experience a variety of powerful sensory diet activities that can be easily implemented in a variety of environments (home, school and clinic).
- Understand how, when and why to modify activities to meet each client’s unique functional goals.
- Evaluate the effectiveness of selected activities on an individual’s state regulation and modulation using key clinical observations (respiratory patterns and core activation).
