Assessment of Sensory Processing Issues in High-risk Populations: Down Syndrome

Barbara Connolly


September 27, 2022 - Venue TBD

Children with Down Syndrome are at risk for sensory processing problems due to neuroanatomical differences in the structure of their brains when compared to the "typical" brain. Additionally, recent research has shown that children with Down Syndrome score differently on standardized tests of sensory processing when compared to the typically developing child . This course will provide an overview of the etiology of sensory processing problems in children with Down Syndrome and discuss the evaluation tools that can be used to identify problems in this population.
