This course emphasizes how to incorporate sensory strategies for self-regulation in school-based therapy, clinic-based services, and home health services to promote participation and performance in varied environments, including the school context. Emphasis will be on preventing behaviors and meltdowns related to sensory processing, collaborating with teachers and parents to implement into daily routines, and monitoring outcomes for documentation and program evaluation. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
