This is a 2 day workshop. Carolyn Murray-Slutsky and Betty Paris skillfully use a layering system to delve into the confusing and challenging behaviors that children and adults often demonstrate; addressing the question Is it sensory or is it behaviour? Videos, instructor case presentations and Case studies offered by participants will be used to sort out sensory based problems from other causes, and design intervention strategies to address the underlying problems. Participants will learn to use sensory based interventions and positive behavioral strategies to reduce undesirable behaviors and facilitate effective coping strategies in the individual. Focus will be on the most effective strategies to meet the individual’s emotional, sensory and behavioral needs. A flow chart and the behavioral analysis worksheet will be used to guide the analysis process and objectify clinical observations. Specific intervention strategies will clearly be identified for use at home, group homes, school, day cares, clinics, work, sheltered workshops or other environments.
