This course will assist the therapist in the neurological basis for sensory disorders. Many times we are focused on the appropriateness of a child’s activity. When we look deep into the nervous system, overloaded senses because of the structure of the pathways, we can change the cause and symptom. The central nervous system receives sensory information. Neural impulses are relayed through connections in multiple regions of the nervous system. The central nervous systems outgoing pathways are demonstrated as motor skills, emotion and social interaction with others.
Consideration of the processing and integration process will enlighten the therapist on how to alter pathways. This achieves improved results in function and learning.
