Course Description

CEU Course Description

Sensory processing, also known as sensory integration, refers to effectively receiving, organizing, interpreting, and responding to sensory stimuli from the environment. Sensory information comes in many forms. Some people may readily interpret and process certain types of input but have difficulty with other forms. In order for people to behave in a consistent, even manner, it is important to have good sensory processing skills. It is for this reason that sensory processing can also be called sensory regulation. Occupational therapists receive education and training in how to address sensory processing deficits in patients of all ages. Therapists can complete evaluations to determine the types of sensory input that an individual struggles to process. The treatment process then consists of therapists making recommendations to promote regulated behaviors and providing various modalities to improve a patient’s ability to regulate certain types of input. 

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Define the purpose of sensory integration therapy within the field of occupational therapy.
  2. Identify populations that can be helped by sensory techniques and strategies.
  3. Identify the clinical presentations and symptoms that point toward dysregulation of the seven senses (tactile, audition, vision, olfaction, gustation, vestibular, and proprioception).
