Course Outline

This two-part webinar will focus on current trends in early identification and assessment of sensory motor issues in young children birth to three. Active problem solving and video tape analysis of case studies provide participants with an opportunity to identify atypical sensory motor development through assessment. Through the clinical reasoning process participants will have an opportunity to identify multi-system impairments that impact a young child’s acquisition of motor skill development, self- regulation, behavior and influence participation. The learner will acquire the ability to clinically reason which assessment tools to use to assist with early identification.

Course Objectives

On completion of the workshop, Participants will:

  • Determine atypical motor behavior through assessment using movement analysis.
  • Recognize young children with sensory processing disorders i.e. sensory motor disorder, sensory regulatory disorder and their impact on participation and behavior.
  • Choose which assessment tools are most optimal for early identification of motor and sensory issues in children birth to three.
Who Can Benefit?

This course is designed for special ed teachers, psychologists, pediatric Occupational, Physical and Speech and Language pathologists.
