This dynamic course elucidates the connection between the vestibular system, reflexes, and ocular motor skills with beats and rhythm while providing the tools for effective assessment and treatment. New and seasoned practitioners will improve their understanding of the sensory systems and effectiveness of treatment.
- CEU DETAILS
The focus of this course is to learn effective treatment strategies that are designed to help individuals with sensory processing disorders (SPD) lead full and productive lives. This intensive conference will provide clinicians with dynamic state of the art intervention strategies that support integration of sensation. Presentation of current neurobiology of the vestibular systems central role in sub-cortical and cortical intercommunication and related research are reviewed. Assessment strategies and intervention methods that are intended to:
- Improve sensory modulation
- Enhance vestibular function and postural skills
- Optimize social readiness
- Synchronize the organization and sequencing of motor skills and behavior as needed for optimal function in time and space
Upon completion of this course, you will:
1. Be able to discuss the basic principals of vestibular sensory-motor bridge system and how the nervous system organizes information.
2. Utilize assessment strategies for detection of primitive vestibular reflexes, ocular motility, vestibulocerebellar functioning, sensory discrimination and motor sequencing.
3. Implement effective intervention strategies using vestibuloproprioceptive-tactile system combined with auditory and ocular inputs, projected action sequencing and spatial-temporal perception.
Instructor Lise Gerard Faulise is renowned nationally for her workshops on sensory processing disorders with Patricia Wilbarger. Ms. Faulise is the founder of Rehab New England, a private sensory integration- oriented practice in Rhode Island, and co-founder of the Wolf School in East Providence, Rhode Island, designed for K-8 children with learning differences. She currently conducts research at the Wolf School and provides private clinical services in the New England area.
Ms. Faulise’s experience includes teaching and clinical instruction at Saint Louis University, where she was director of the Faculty Practice in the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy. More recently, she lived in France and provided client consultation and faculty training to the International Schools in Paris. She received her Advanced Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from Boston University.
"As a PT this course gave me a greater understanding of assessment and treatment of the vestibular system in children. I now have a much bigger picture of how that system truly affects so many other systems of the body and can help me organize my clients so we can achieve greater results in treatment sessions." -Sandy Beavercreek
"Finally a higher level course for sensory-based intervention. I left the course feeling re-energized and having gained a better understanding of applying sensory diet concepts for kids with various sensory processing disorders. The speaker is dynamic and encouraging.” -Erica H. Freve
“Lise has a vast amount of knowledge which she shared with us. She was realistic in her sensory diet planning for many environments. Lise helped me to realize how to implement sensory diets within the classroom to be advantageous for all class children.” -Elizabeth Swanson
"Experienced Therapists - Don't miss this course! Lise's course is the perfect one to expand skills in both treatment and prescription of sensory diets for families and schools. She validates what can be effective about powerful sensory experiences when they are provided via systematic and hierarchical protocols, sensitive to the needs of clients, families and schools and documented." -Vera Hickson
