Early Intervention for Infants and Young Children (0-3): Sensory, Feeding, Behavior

Course Description:

This evidence-based course is a two day interactive and dynamic workshop that will provide therapists with valuable information and tools to help address behavioral, sensory and feeding issues in the birth to five population. The course is designed for therapists at the intermediate level of practice. It will provide an overview of the top-down approach to evaluation and choice of tools to make evidence-based decisions regarding eligibility and treatment. Strategies to improve carryover and implementation of interventions within the home, community and pre-school setting will be discussed. Through small group discussions, case study presentations and interactive lessons, participants will enhance their clinical decision making skills.

 Participants will be able to:

  • Summarize the top down approach to evaluation using tools that can be used in early intervention and preschool
  • Integrate the information gathered from interviews and tools into a comprehensive yet concise and accurate report
  • Develop strategies for patient education and better carry over
  • Discuss principles of evidence based practice in treatment decisions and to integrate those decisions into treatment planning to address sensory, feeding and behavioral issues

Suggested Audience:

Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists and Assistants. This course is geared to an introductory-intermediate level. For those with experience, the course offers evidence based practice and outcome based methods and for those with less experience, the course provides a basis of building intervention strategies with supportive EBP.
