Connections: Treatment of Sensory Processing Issues

This two-day workshop will provide clinicians with state of the art treatment ideas for comprehensive sensory processing intervention across the lifespan. Videotape analysis, and lectures will support the learning of integrative treatment for individuals experiencing the impact of sensory processing challenges. This workshop is presented at an intermediate level of knowledge providing clinicians with current sensory processing strategies for mixed populations in children and adolescents. Therapists across disciplines (OT, PT and Assistants) will enjoy this innovative learning experience.
