Dear Members,

On behalf of PAIE Executive Committee, we would like to invite you for the PAIE workshop to be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014. Details of the session are as follows:

Title:                                “Children with Sensory Integration Issues”

Seminar Objective:
Children with sensory processing disorder have difficulty processing information from the senses (touch, movement, smell, taste, vision, and hearing) and responding appropriately to that information. These children typically have one or more senses that either over- or underreact to stimulation. Sensory processing disorder can cause problems with a child's development and behavior. Occupational therapists, parents, special and mainstream educators will find this workshop useful for their practice. This workshop will allow them to work as a team with occupational therapist to make intervention plan for children with sensory processing issues for stimulation and environmental interventions. Through this workshop participants will be able to

Ø  Identify social/emotional and behavioral issues in the light of sensory processing disorder
Ø  Address these issues within classroom and home environment
