Autism Strategies in Action

This on line autism training series is offered free of charge to residents of Ohio.  It includes a 1 1/2 hour introductory module, The Many Faces of Autism, presenting  information about unique characteristics of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), including social-communication, restricted interests and patterns of behavior, sensory, cognition and information processing, and emotional regulation. Five simple strategies are introduced that may be used anytime, anywhere with young children, students, and adults with ASD.  There are also three 12-hour modules covering three age groups -- toddler and preschool, school age and transition age.  Visit www.ocali.org for information about this and other resources on autism.

 

What is Sensory Processing Disorder

Sensory Processing Disorder is a condition in which the brain has trouble receiving and responding to information that comes in through the senses.  Some people with sensory processing disorder are oversensitive to things in their environment (common sounds or sights may be overstimulating).  Other individuals are undersensitive to sensory input. A video introduction to Sensory Processing Disorder and available treatments from OCALI can be found here.
