This course will provide participants with advanced intervention strategies to address ideational problems in children with praxis deficits. Difficulties generating ideas and plans for action are common problems in children with sensory integration and praxis deficits, including those with autism spectrum disorder. These ideational problems can be particularly difficult to treat. This course will provide a novel intervention approach which will address the difficulties in recognizing and acting on action and object affordances and problems in representational thought which underlie ideational praxis difficulties. In addition, this course will address the relationship of ideation in praxis with executive function skills. Videotape examples and case study presentations will be used to illustrate intervention techniques. The course format, a combination of lecture, videotapes, and small group discussion allows for opportunities to address participant’s’ questions and concerns.
