Using Innate Sensory-Motor Intervention to Help Overcome ADHD Symptoms—Rationale and Supporting Evidence

Sonia Story

May 6th, 2021

11:30 am - 12:30 pm CT

CEUs: 1 contact hour

(.1 AOTA CEUs)

Course Description

Huge numbers of children and adults live with the symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Research evidence shows that ADHD symptoms are associated with motor challenges and with sensory processing challenges. Research also shows that the brains of individuals with ADHD are less developed than the brains of individuals who do not have these symptoms.

This leads to important questions: Can innate sensory-motor activities provide increased brain development and maturity? Is there evidence showing that innate sensory-motor activities may help to reduce ADHD symptoms? Join us for this 1-hour lecture to explore the answers to these questions.

Beyond the Seen and Behind the Scenes of Behaviors: Understanding the Needs of Neurodivergents 
An Interview with an Autistic OT

Kim Clairy and Dr. Kelly Mahler

September 15th, 2021

11:30 am - 12:30 pm CT

CEUs: 1 contact hour

Course Description

All too often, the needs of neurodivergents are significantly misunderstood resulting in areas that either go un-addressed or sometimes even worse are addressed from the wrong perspective (e.g., a behavioral approach). As an autistic OT, Kim will provide a fresh view on a few of these common areas including sensory experiences, self-understanding, communication and social participation. Expand the way you understand the challenges your clients may have in one or more of these areas; this knowledge in turn will empower you to provide more meaningful and targeted supports (and dare we say—serve as the most effective, kindest ‘behavior support’ available).
