Raising a Sensory Smart Child
Presented by Lindsey Biel, OTR-L from the Fall 2012 Autism Research Institute Conference
Do you or does someone you care about have sensory processing challenges? This session will demystify those sensory issues and provide you with practical solutions for overcoming sensitivities to noise, touch, movement, visuals, taste, and smell that can interfere with function at home, at school, and in the community. Sensory diet strategies, environment accommodations, and where to get the best help will also be discussed.
