Special Needs

Working With Children With Special Needs

In this course we will go over strategies to help children with autism and sensory processing disorder. Keep in mind that a strategy for one disorder may be just as helpful for an overlapping symptom from another disorder. You will learn how the disorders may present themselves differently in each individual child and how to track data with parents to unveil the function of the child's behavior. Upon completion of this course you will have a whole new set of tools to add to your toolbox when working with children with autism and sensory processing disorder.
