Saturday, May 15, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Sunday, May 16, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Saturday, May 22nd, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Sunday, May 23rd, from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
*All modules according to Argentinian Time (GMT-3)*
Health and education professionals who have sufficient knowledge of the bases of the Sensory Integration Theory.
This is an intensive course in sensory integration that focuses specifically on the auditory system, addressing modulation and perception processes in depth, and focusing on the scientific evidence, including discussions from a clinical approach.
This course emphasizes on the scientific evidence sustaining behavior and learning relating to auditory processing. This course doesn’t address particular clinical assessment techniques or specific treatment methods, but rather aims to develop clinical reasoning using scientific fundaments to address auditory difficulties in clinical practices.
This course consists of two modules, which include the following topics:
Module 1: Saturday and Sunday
- Introduction to the auditory system from a sensory integration perspective
- Historical evidence of evolutionary development
- Neuroanatomical review of auditory organs and neuronal circuits
- Afferent and efferent neurophysiology
- Central brain structures for auditory perception and integration
Module 2: Saturday and Sunday
- The auditory system in childhood development
- How auditory processing influences learning and behavior
- Auditory modulation and perception
- Audition and cognition
- Current research findings regarding auditory processes in sensory integration
Mode: Live Online (Through Zoom platform).
