These 4 webinars will provide a look at different facets and features of Autism Spectrum Disorder. By no means all explaining as we need to learn so much more, but it will provide the viewer with many points to ponder as we keep chasing the “why’s” of learning behavior.
This series includes:
Sensory Processing And Autism Spectrum Disorder
Sensory Processing is considered one of the criteria for a diagnosis on the Autism Spectrum. Discover the intricacies of the different sensory systems and their particular impact on persons diagnosed on the spectrum. Each sensory system including praxis / motor planning is discussed in terms of definition, impact and intervention ideas.

The developmental hierarchy includes individual differences and uses natural, important relationships to draw the loved one into our world through their own decision making process.
