Developing and Implementing Effective Sensory Diets for Children and Teens


LIVE, interactive webinar, April 6, 9:00 AM – 4:15 PM EST


The use of a sensory diet is a research-based method of providing individuals with sensory modulation difficulties the input they need to focus, engage, process information effectively, and regulate emotional responses. This practical, evidence-based, online course equips therapists, teachers, and caregivers with the ability to determine the sensory needs of a child and implement a sensory plan to effectively meet the child’s needs. Through case studies, group problem solving, and a make & take project, you can finish this course with all you need to start implementing effective sensory diets immediately!
