Self-regulation, sensory integration, executive functioning, emotional regulation - what does it all mean? This course will help to demystify this terminology. We simplify the complicated neurological anatomy to provide a connection to function. Neurological dysfunction is later addressed as it relates to the diagnoses of ADHD, Sensory Processing, and Autism. Finally the course reviews both traditional and innovative intervention approaches and their connection to neuroplasticity.
