Targeting Problem Behaviors and Providing Intervention Strategies at School

Donna Schulman, MS, OTR/L, narrates this 1-hour webinar that gives information for therapists, parents, teachers, counselors, and other professionals who provide services to children with special needs in schools. Information is presented on how to specifically identify problem behaviors and how to determine whether or not problem behaviors are sensory based, behaviorally based, or both. The interoceptive system, a system that is sometimes overlooked, is discussed along with the other sensory systems.
