ASC Professional Seminar & Dinner Series: Sensory Processing in the Autism Spectrum Conditions

Format Seminar/Presentation
Presenters Dr Michelle Garnett & Debra Bone
Description The high prevalence of sensory processing problems amongst people on the autism spectrum has led the DSM-V committee to include sensory issues as a new diagnostic criterion for autism. Despite this, many professionals have not been trained to assess or assist in the management of these issues. This seminar is for professionals who work with people on the autism spectrum and who wish to learn more about sensory issues. Professionals will increase their understanding of sensory processing disorders, learn about two standardized measures they can use in their practice with their clients, and develop skill in how to help their clients manage these issues. They will learn about relevant resources and appropriate referral. The seminar will be presented by two specialists in ASC, allowing participants to gain understanding from two disciplines: occupational therapy and clinical psychology.
About the presenter(s) Dr Michelle Garnett is a clinical psychologist and founder of Minds & Hearts, a specialist clinic in Brisbane for children and adults who have an autism spectrum condition (ASC).

Debra Bone is a private paediatric occupational therapist who helps children facing challenges in everyday life. She has a particular passion for the way that atypical sensory processing abilities can impact upon children.

Michelle and Debra are ASC specialists who together have over 40 years of experience in helping people with autism spectrum conditions. They are warm, inspiring, engaging and knowledgeable presenters.
