This 4-day (3 hours per day) course introduces participants to the interconnectedness and roles of the three principle domains of development: sensory processing, regulation and relationship. The neuro-foundations and therapeutic guidelines to address each domain will be discussed. Special attention will be given to the unique interrelationship sensory processing has with the other two domains. Clinical implications and guidelines for practice will be discussed.
