Course Description

Children with sensory processing challenges typically experience difficulties with how their bodies move. When supporting the development of motor function, movement analysis, biomechanics and kinesiology are helpful layers of understanding that enhance clinical reasoning and intervention. Observing compensatory movements and creating environments and activities to enhance motor control will be the focus of this learning experience. This two-day session will combine lecture, video demos, analysis practicums and handling labs. 

Course Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  1. Summarize kinesiological concepts and movement analysis as they apply to individuals with sensory processing challenges.

  2. Analyze postural alignment and movement challenges.

  3. Summarize the components and importance of postural control.

  4. Practice hands-on techniques to support the development of postural control.

  5. Determine the appropriateness of motor interventions within sensory treatments.

  6. Practice developing environmental and play schemes to support motor skills.
