"I loved the combining of OT SI theory with parenting/ attachment theories. I felt it offered very practice based interventions which were tried and tested. I found the videos and case studies really useful."

"Working with babies/toddlers/children with special needs always brings up sensory, sleep and feeding issues. This course helped me to understand these issues better and provided me with some tools to address them."

Overview

Assessment and treatment of infants with sensory integration problems and disorders of regulation.

Sleep, feeding, play and regulation of mood are the occupations of young infants and toddlers. These occupations are strongly influenced by the infant’s modulation of sensory information and his relationship context. A fussy baby, a toddler who does not sleep well and a little one who is a difficult feeder is a challenge for any mother. Occupational therapists are in the unique position to address fussy infant behaviours by looking at the sensory and emotional aspects of early childhood. According to DC: 0-3, a diagnosis of a regulatory disorder in an infant or young child requires both a distinct behavioural pattern and a related sensory motor, or organizational processing difficulty. The processing deficit interferes with the child’s ability to manage a calm, alert or emotionally positive state. – G Gorden Williamson PhD Monie E. Angalone ScD OTR.
