Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD): Intervention Strategies for Sensory, Motor and Sensory-based Behavioural Components Across the Lifespan and  

Is It Sensory or Is It Behaviour? Changing Behaviours to Improve Functional Performance and Participation

Summary: 

This 4 day workshop is designed as 2 continuous workshops that build on the previous workshop giving participants an in-depth knowledge of: ASD and other sensory based diagnosis; Intervention strategies and the tools to analyse if it is Sensory or Behaviour; strategies to intervene and develop programs that will change behaviours and improve functional performance and participation. The first two days are designed to help participants understand the individual with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and other diagnosis with sensory based components; design appropriate treatment plans and to learn many treatment techniques that are effective for hands on intervention or consultation. Both courses are designed for therapists, however, parents, teachers, carers, social workers, psychologists and other professionals have found the material very valuable.

Overview:

The first two days are designed to help participants understand the individual with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and other diagnosis with sensory based components; design appropriate treatment plans and to learn many treatment techniques that are effective for hands on intervention or consultation. Both courses are designed for therapists, however, parents, teachers, carers, social workers, psychologists and other professionals have found the material very valuable. Carolyn Murray-Slutsky and Betty Paris skilfully use a layering system to guide participants to a deep understanding of the complexities of sensory integrative and behaviours seen in individuals with autism spectrum disorders.

Participant’s knowledge of the characteristics and current theories that relate to Autism Spectrum Disorders and other diagnosis with sensory based components will be expanded. We will look in- depth at many of the sensory, motor, functional and learning difficulties encountered by our clients. We will draw from theories of sensory integration, neuro-developmental treatment, behavioural intervention, medical models, learning strategies and traditional functional therapy in order to identify the underlying problems and most effective intervention strategies for various environments across the lifespan. Emphasis will be placed on both identifying the underlying problem as well as the most effective intervention strategies to improve participation.
