Physical development directly affects all other areas of a child's development.
Children with sensory based motor disorder often demonstrate delays in social-emotional and academic development. Early identification and intervention can improve a child's daily function, self-esteem and school readiness.
This workshop will explain the two types of sensory based motor disorders. Evaluation and assessments that are available for this population will be explored. You will learn how to use skilled observation and parent interviews to identify how sensory based motor disorders affect both the child and the family. Direct intervention techniques and strategies will be addressed.
