Addressing Visual Processing Deficits in Children With SPD (Recorded Webinar)

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 58 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 6 Minutes

This course is a recording of a previously hosted live webinar event. Polling and question submission features are not available for this recording. Format and structure may differ from standard MedBridge courses.

Vision is much more than meets the eye. It is a complex, multifaceted neurological process that begins with visual input traveling from the eyes to the central nervous system and integrating in the cerebellum. The cerebellum plays an especially important role in this process as it is the Grand Central train station where sensory signals from visual, vestibular, proprioceptive, and auditory input communicate with each other. In this webinar, clinicians will learn to both identify and treat visual processing challenges in children with sensory processing disorder. A case study will be thoroughly examined to demonstrate a progressive plan of care, starting with initial symptoms, assessment methods utilized, intervention techniques that address visual integration, and outcomes resulting in successful participation in childhood occupations. This webinar is applicable for OTs, COTAs, PTs, and PTAs working in pediatric outpatient hospitals, clinics, early intervention, and school-based settings.

Healthy Bodies and Healthy Minds: Sensory Strategies for Promoting Wellness in Children

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

In this course, therapists learn innovative ideas on how to integrate health and wellness interventions and strategies into the daily lives of youth struggling with childhood disorders that impact emotional regulation, attention span, problem solving skills, social interactions, and physical health. The American Occupational Therapy Association's 'Vision 2025' identifies health and wellness as a focused key practice area for therapists in the 21st century. Because health is an important component of both physical and emotional well-being, there is an increased need for wellness-related services. Research studies examining health-related interventions indicate promising results for children's well-being. Implementing these interventions into daily life improves a child's neurophysiological symptoms resulting from SPD, ADHD, ASD, and decreased exposure to nature. As the number of children with SPD increases and the correlation between nature-deficit disorder and prevalent childhood disorders is established, it is imperative for therapists to incorporate wellness interventions into their therapeutic strategies. This course identifies a decrease in physical activity as a key problem in children with sensory processing disorder (SPD), attention deficit disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and nature-deficit disorder. Therapists are introduced to a variety of wellness strategies focusing on meaningful occupations, including outdoor activities in nature, therapeutic gardening, yoga, deep breathing, and mindfulness activities. These wellness interventions teach children many important skills that can be applied to daily life experiences.
