Sensory processing in everyday life and coaching: Evidence based practices for serving children with autism and their families

It is imperative that we serve families with the best possible strategies based on the current evidence. During this session, we will:

  • explore how sensory processing knowledge provides vital information for planning successful family routines and interactions;
     
  • discuss the effective use of coaching practices to support families to have high quality living on their terms and in the ways that work for their families; and
     
  • examine the resource effectiveness of providing services via telehealth.

 

Dr. Dunn is Professor of the Department of Occupational Therapy Education at the University of Kansas.  She is an internationally known expert for her studies about sensory processing in everyday life.  She has published more than 100 research articles, book chapters and books, and has spoken around the world about her work.  She is the author/ coauthor of all of the Sensory Profile measures, which capture people’s responses to sensory events in everyday life; these assessments have been translated into dozens of languages and are used for both professional practice and in research programs.  The second edition of the Sensory Profiles for children became available in 2014.  She has received the top honors in her field, including the Award of Merit for outstanding overall contributions, and the Eleanor Clark Slagle Lectureship for outstanding academic contributions; she is a member of the Academy of Research for the American Occupational Therapy Foundation and has received the A. Jean Ayres research award.  She has also received awards for innovative and engaging teaching, including the Chancellor’s Excellence in Teaching Award, the Kemper Teaching Fellowship and in 2011 she received the Chancellor’s Distinguished Professorship from the University of Kansas.  Most recently she has written a book for the public about her research entitled Living Sensationally understanding your senses, which has been featured in Time magazine, Cosmopolitan magazine, Canadian Public Radio and the London Times newspaper among others.  In July 2009, Living Sensationally received the Seal of Excellence from the Children of the New Earth magazine for parents, professionals and other caregivers.

A training series provided by the Oklahoma Autism Network


About the ConnectedKids Training Series:

ConnectedKids is a program for parents to learn how to use developmental and behavioral (ABA) strategies with their child with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The focus of the program is to increase the child’s social communication and engagement skills. We are offering the ConnectedKids program in an intensive, interactive, and in-class training over four full-days. The program, scheduled over a four-month period, allows for practice of strategies between training days. Parents or primary caregivers who participate in the training will learn:

  • to use strategies to increase your child’s interest in interacting with you and others in your family;
     
  • to use your child’s interest in an activity to teach new social-communication skills, such as requesting, following directions, playing with toys, and imitating others;
     
  • to use prompting and reinforcement to teach new skills, which are key applied behavior analysis (ABA) techniques that help your child develop new, more complex skills;
     
  • to identify what skills to teach your child and how to create opportunities to teach during play and daily routines;
     
  • about resources in the community; and
     
  • to advocate for your child in a collaborative way.


What is Required:

  • Attend all four days of training.  From each family participating, at least one (the same) parent or caregiver must attend all sessions because the information during each session is based on what was learned during prior sessions.
     
  • Complete homework and practice with your child at home between training sessions.
     
  • Record short 3-5 minute videos of you and your child playing together to demonstrate use of the new strategies you are learning.  Videos may be viewed during training.


Dates, Time, Location and Other Information:

  • February 17, 2017, March 3, 2017, March 24, 2017, and April 21, 2017
     
  • All trainings are scheduled from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm in Oklahoma City.
     
  • Registration is free for participants.
     
  • Participation is limited to 6 families.
