intensive workshop for therapists

course description

During this workshop, participants will learn the essential elements of Ayres Sensory Integration® and the contribution of sensory integration to early development including state regulation, perception, motor skills, and praxis.  Accurate and comfortable sensory integration lays a foundation for perception and action that is pivotal throughout development, beginning with state regulation and progressing towards mastery of a myriad of life skills.  Through video analysis and case discussions, participants will learn to systematically analyze sensory functions and analyze assessment findings for the purpose of communicating with parents and providing effective interventions.
