Description: Dyspraxia is frequently a "hidden" disability causing great pain in many children and adults struggling with attention, executive functioning, social-communication and learning disorders. Sensory processing / integration is a theory that underlies many different diagnostic categories across the developmental continuum today. Many professionals discuss it, a large number attend some training in it, though fewer professionals fully understand the depth and breadth of this underlying mechanism to development. Dyspraxia is an important layer in this sensory-motor developmental continuum. The different types of dyspraxia drive crucial differences identified in assessment and causes very different approaches to intervention.Maude will clarify Dyspraxia in a clear, practical way, providing the participant information that will inform and guide clinical practice and understanding. Parents are welcome to join us as we take this journey through different brain pathways yet stay the course to discuss functional implications. This workshop seriesis considered Track 1 (Bronze level) in a series of 3 workshops, which will be pre-required for entering the Track 2(Silver level)workshop concerning Assessment of Dyspraxia. Track 2 will be scheduled in the first trimester of 2023.

- Identify three types of Dyspraxia influencing occupational performance as a school student.
- List 2 visual pathways in the brain that would play a role in ideation, critical for creativity as well as sensory-motor ability
- Differentiate between proprioception, deep touch and light touch as it pertains to the registration of information when considering movement or the use of tools.
- Discuss 2 primary reflexes that would inhibit the development of bilateral integration ultimately impacting on interhemispheric organization.
- List 6visual and auditory skills that will impact on the development of reading and writing skill
- Differentiate between a “jaw jut” and a “jaw slide” as it pertains to feeding and oral motor skill.
- Consider 3 measurements in body musculature that is important for sustained endurance in sensory-motor ability.
- Discuss 4 different types of Modulation Disorders involved in the behavior patterns of developing children.
- Identify at least 3 different functions of interoception that is instrumental for everyday functioning
- Recognize the importance of play and development and problem-solving skill in social-emotional health and wellbeing
