Sensory AND Behavior (6-Hr Advanced Course)


Product Description

Sensory AND Behavior: A comprehensive approach to addressing challenging behaviors (6-hour advanced level course)

Prerequisites for this advance class include either Gwen’s full-day course (live or view-on-demand) titled “Developing and Implementing Effective Sensory Diets” or her webinar titled “Sensory Diets 101.” Alternatively, professionals who have reached a comfort level with sensory processing disorders and the use of sensory strategies in multiple settings are welcome to participate as well.

Gwen guides you through the neurochemicals involved in sensory modulation; the correlation between related disorders such as Bipolar, anxiety, ADHD, and Autism; and introduces you to a whole-brain approach to addressing difficult behaviors (such as self-injurious behaviors, aggression, meltdowns, toilet training, picky eating, and masturbation) from a sensory perspective. This innovative, 6-hour, webinar leaves you with handy forms, intervention tools, and the knowledge you need to differentiate behavioral issues from sensory ones.

Purchase of this 6-hour course includes one of the following: (1) FREE membership to BrainWorks Online for nonmembers, (2) FREE Single Family/Single Classroom BrainWorks kit for members, or (3) FREE digital product(s) for non-USA participants. Complete instructions for accessing your FREE materials are included in the link to the webinar received after purchase.
