On Saturday, September 27, 2014, Autism Services, Inc. and the Autism Society Western New York Chapter are pleased to present “Sensory, Emotional, and Behavioral Regulation in Individuals with ASD.” The presenter is Ms. Paula Aquilla, B.Sc., OT, an occupational therapist and author of “Building Bridges Through Sensory Integration- Therapy for Children with Autism and Other Pervasive Developmental Disorders.” This workshop will examine the dynamics between sensory integration, and emotional as well as behavioral regulation in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Parents and professionals will learn how to identify when sensory/emotional/behavioral dysregulation occurs, as well as practical strategies to help those affected learn and maintain self-regulation in the school, home, and community environments. An collaborative approach for sensory integration and the role of language/communication in self-regulation will also be discussed. This workshop is geared for both professionals and parents.
