This 3 day workshop blends cutting-edge neurobiology with treatment strategies supporting paediatricians, clinicians, educators and caregivers who serve the Autism Spectrum Disordered population.
Through a series of lectures, participants will leave with a multi-dimensional understanding of autism through deepened insights into epigenetic, neural connectivity, immunology, relationship based intervention and sensory-mortor treatment programs.
Current and in-depth understanding of the mechanisms of the brain-body science of ASD allows service providers to create evidence-informed choices of treatments for individual clients across a wide range of treatment modalities.
You have the option to take any conference day as a stand-alone course.
Day One: Neurobiology of the Autism Brain
Leaners will develop:
- a preliminary understanding of the current science of genetic/environmental interaction in the development of ASD
- a basic understanding of neurotransmitters involved in Autism Spectrum Disorder
- an awareness of the translational research of how neuroscience affects cognitive, behaviour and therapeutic intervention
Day Two: The Science of Regulation and Attunement
- develop an advanced understanding of the science of sensory processing as it contributes to regulation and behaviour
- gain knowledge of advanced treatment techniques to support regulation (sensory, cognitive, behaviour and emotional)
Day Three: Sensory Processing Intervention
Learners will develop an advanced understanding/awareness of:
- sensory processing in the autistic brain as it contributes to learning and function (i.e. sensory processing, intervention, therapeutic listening, colour therapy glasses intergrated listening system, vestibular protocols)
- the brain parts involved in motor control in autism
- treatment for the motor system in clients with autism
