DescriptionCari Ebert, a pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist talks about understanding that sensory input drives motor and behavioral output provides the foundation for this course. The way young children take in and respond to sensory information can significantly impact their learning, development and behavior. During this presentation, educators and therapists will increase their knowledge related to the impact of sensorimotor issues on speech, language and social-emotional development. An overview of the external and internal sensory systems will be provided along with a discussion of observable characteristics related to sensory over-responsivity, sensory under-responsivity and sensory craving behaviors. Participants will examine the benefits of using multisensory activities to help young children interact more effectively with their environment.
