Sensory Processing Disorder: Research, Strategies & Resources

Mar 22, 2012 6:30 pm -
Mar 22, 2012 9:00 pm

Event Description

Part of a Series of Workshops Supporting Children Living with Development Disabilities: A Strengths Approach

Anastasia Galanopoulos, PhD, instructor

What is Sensory Processing Disorder? How can professionals fine-tune their skills to effectively support children (through middle school age) with this type of neurological and behavioral profile? This workshop will examine the nature of Sensory Processing Disorder, formerly known as Sensory Integration Dysfunction. It will review the most current research findings on causation and recommended educational strategies. Through experiential learning, participants will gain an understanding of their own sensory profiles and brainstorm problem-solving using fictional case studies and professional/personal examples. Discussion will concentrate on use of a strengths approach instead of a disability perspective in work with children with SPD. The program will also identify helpful resources for both professionals and families.


Participants will gain the ability to:


1.     ability to identify and/or discuss current knowledge on the nature and causes of SPD

2.     ability to list and/or discuss characteristics of behavior of children with SPD

3.     ability to identify examples of strategies for inclusive teaching practice

4.     ability to identify resources for professionals and families working/living with SPD 


Program Code: DD253
