Sensory vs. Behavior asks the question: is any given behavior stemming from a sensory integration issue - or from behavioral difficulties? Parents and therapists will walk away understanding how their children and clients need to be treated.
Parents and practitioners will learn the components of sensory processing disorder, differentiate behaviors that may be resulting from sensory processing disorder, and distinguish neurochemical imbalances that may impact behaviors and regulation difficulties.
You will learn how to screen if the underlying cause of behavior is from a sensory processing disorder and be able to plan treatment programs in accordance.
Amy and Evelyn Guttmann, OTR/L, sister pediatric occupational therapists, have been treating families and children with over 40 years of experience between them.
Graduates of SUNY Health Science Center of New York, they currently run Hands on OT Rehab in Brooklyn, NY, a private practice focused on treating children with anxiety and processing delays, as well as a practice focused on training and educating therapists, pediatricians, educators, and parents.
