All behavior is communication… so what is your child's behavior communicating? Are they communicating a sensory need, or some other need? Let's figure it out together!
All videos are under 10 minutes long for up to 2.5 hours of content.
*At this time, I don't have closed captioning available on my videos, but I do include all the transcript notes written and typed out below each video*
In this mini course for parents, you'll learn
- Why we need to reframe the debate "is it sensory or is it behavior?"
- What sensory processing is
- The 3 main sensory profiles
- How the vestibular, proprioception, interception and tactile systems work.
- Potential sensory triggers and non-sensory triggers related to common behaviors, such as: hitting, refusing to get dressed, transition challenges, constant touching of objects, hyperactivity/movement, classroom behaviors
- Brief examples of how to support a child with sensory needs.
- Brief examples of how to support a child with non-sensory needs
- When it's time to seek OT
- How to go about getting OT support
- How to support your child before meltdowns, during meltdowns, after meltdowns and between meltdowns
This course focuses on educating the "why" behind common behaviors and *general* ways to think about how to support children based on their needs, it does not provide specific strategies or sensory activities to do for each child.
*All parents, teachers, therapists, OTs are welcome to take this course, but please know the language and examples are geared towards parents, and no CEUs/PDUs are available.
