About this Webinar:
“Regulation” is our bodies ability to change the levels of alertness or arousal based on the needs in our environment. In our regulated state we can listen, learn, and participate to the best of our ability. However, regulation can be hard to achieve for some because our bodies are overwhelmed with what we see, hear, smell and feel in our environment. This webinar will provide therapists and instructors with an introductory knowledge on how the sensory system and sensory dysfunction impacts participation, including plenty of examples and case studies on behavior modification for the equine environment.
What will you learn?
- Introduction to the sensory system
- Brief summary of sensory dysfunction
- When to refer to a therapist
- Case Studies and examples of modifications to achieve regulation.
- Time for Q & A
