Objectives

  1. Summarize the neuroscientific research related to self-regulation and sensory processing in kids diagnosed with Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, and ADHD.
  2. Differentiate between the characteristics of sensory processing disorder, ADHD and autism and articulate how the neurological processes of each disorder coincide with one another.
  3. Apply neurological approaches that tap into the central, autonomic, and enteric nervous systems to improve clinical intervention techniques.
  4. Examine the role of primitive reflexes and how they support or impede client functioning.
  5. Evaluate the relationship between the autonomic nervous system and behavior in clients.
  6. Determine the neurological responses aligned with intervention techniques to further enhance treatment planning.
  7. Develop appropriate clinical interventions for challenging behaviors in clients, such as hyper-activity, hypoactivity, aggressiveness, self-stimulation and inattentiveness.
  8. Implement music as a technique to initiate sensorial stimuli, calming and attentiveness in clients.
  9. Integrate a comprehensive mindfulness program to improve self-regulation in clients.
  10. Utilize role play activities to assess levels of arousal among clients.
