In this course, therapists learn to identify sensory modulation challenges in infants and toddlers by utilizing skilled clinical observation, parental input, and assessments. Case studies are examined in detail, including both initial assessments and therapeutic interventions, as a foundation upon which to build a comprehensive understanding of effective treatment planning. This course provides a repertoire of practical sensory solutions for infants and toddlers, which address challenges specific to each sensory system using evidence-based studies.

Each sensory system is highlighted with useful sensory strategies targeting the three subtypes of sensory modulation disorder: Sensory Over-Responsivity, Sensory Under-Responsivity, and Sensory Seeking/Craving. Therapists develop a repertoire of sensory solutions for effective collaboration between therapist and caretaker for carryover into daily routines.
