Sensory Integration and Self-Regulation Webinar
TTAC hosted a webinar on sensory integration and self regulation with Marie Anzalone, ScD, OTR, FAOTA.
This webinar provided an overview of sensory processing disorders, a set of conditions that can affect young children’s capacities for self-regulation, and often manifest in irritability, avoidant behaviors, and/or disruptive behavior problems. This webinar was a complement to the June 2018 conference, and will serve as a refresher on core themes for those who attended the presentation.
Date & Time: Monday, April 22nd, 1:30 - 2:30 pm
Presenter: Marie Anzalone, ScD, OTR, FAOTA
Children with sensory processing disorders have difficulties in how they register, regulate and cope with sensory information that comes from their environment and bodies. Because they are too young to explain what is bothering them, their behavior can be confusing to adults and may contribute to stress in the parent-child relationship. Designed for a multidisciplinary audience of early childhood practitioners, Dr. Anzalone’s presentation provided a framework for understanding the process of sensory integration in non-affected individuals, an overview of sensory processing disorders, and the importance of working with, and through, families and environments to establish sensory-based co-regulation in young children.
This webinar was geared toward:
- Mental health professionals providing services to children birth to five years of age
- Non-mental health professionals in early care and education and other early childhood programs, including Universal Pre-K and ACS Early Learn, Early Intervention, and Home Visiting
