Course Description:

Practical Tools to Address Sensory vs. Behavioral Issues & Behavioral vs. Sensory Issues

Debra Dickson

Therapists are often asked, Is it sensory, or is it behavior? as if the two are mutually exclusive. This session will discuss the overlap of sensory and behavioral challenges. It will discuss the most under recognized sensory challenges. Participants will learn practical strategies that will impact both domains; as sensory processing and behavior are intimately related.

Participants will:

1. Describe the connections between certain behaviors and certain sensory processing challenges, and the limitations of the ABC method of looking at behavior.

2. Identify some of the most under recognized sensory challenges and why they are critical in ADHD, Autism, Anxiety and LDs.

3. Utilize effective strategies to enhance function and behavior.

Children with weak executive skills struggle to complete tasks in a timely fashion for many reasons: they can't focus, get organized, or manage their emotions in the face of challenging tasks. This workshop will describe strategies that can be used to help children with weak executive skills be more efficient and productive at school and at home.

Participants will be able to:

1. Identify 11 executive skills that govern goal-directed behavior and name at what age these skills are fully mature in typically developing individuals.

2. Describe three broad sets of strategies that can be used to support children with weak executive skills at home or at school.
