Participants will be able to:

  • Develop an understanding that the sensory solutions that one may employ to overcome undesirable sensory input are often considered problematic behaviors instead of recognizing that the individual is problem-solving and figuring out their sensory differences.
  • Understand the necessity of having a broad range of strategies and tools that the person on the spectrum can choose from to meet their sensory needs across their lifetime.
  • Learn about proactive strategies to prevent unwanted sensory input and ways to self-regulate including a sensory scan.
  • Learn how individuals with autism advocate for their needs.

Study Questions

  1. Describe the sensory differences you have observed in an individual with ASD and the solutions they employ to proactively meet their sensory needs input.
