Children with sensory processing disorders often have difficulty with regulation and modulation of sensory input which impacts behavior, attention, social interaction, body awareness, motor planning, fine and gross motor coordination, as well as new learning.
Sensory processing disorders are often seen in children with developmental delays, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome as well as in typically developing children. The use of Interactive Metronome can significantly improve the sensory integration of these children and improve their quality of living. This course will educate participants on the sensory systems (visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, vestibular, and proprioceptive) and how to coordinate and adapt sensory strategies with the use of IM. This course will also focus on the case study of one child with Autism who has undergone treatment of IM using sensory strategies and how his fine motor, gross motor, social interaction, and overall sensory processing as improved due to IM treatment.
