This four part live webinar series is brought to us by the Star Institute who are based in Colarado. STAR Institute for Sensory Processing Disorder was formed in 2016 from two merged organizations SPD Foundation (formed in 1977) and STAR Center (formed in 2005). STAR Institute for SPD provides premier treatment, education, and research for children, adolescents, and adults with SPD.  

Webinar Series Part One 13th January

Introduction to Foundations of Development (2 hours)

This courses provides participants with a brief overview of the inter-connectedness of sensory processing-regulation-relationship by examining shared neurology and impacts on developmental trajectories.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define sensory processing, regulation and relationship using a clinical lens
  • Recognize the impacts of shared neurology of these three foundations of development
  • Identify the role of each foundation in early development and implications on developmental trajectory

Webinar Series Part Two 20th January 

Introduction to SPD Subtypes (2 hours)

An extended version of STAR's Sensory Processing Disorder 101 course, this course provides a more in-depth look at the clinical presentations of each of the subtypes, the inter-relational nature of sensory processing-regulation-relationship, and provides therapeutic guidelines for intervention for each subtypes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the main functions of each of the 8 discussed sensory systems
  • Define the different subtypes of the SPD Nosology
  • Identify the functional impacts of the SPD subtypes on individuals
  • Discuss the bi-directional impacts of sensory processing, regulation and relationship
  • Identify three therapeutic guidelines for intervention for each subtypes

Webinar Series Part Three 27th January

Introduction to PROCESS: STAR Institute’s Treatment Approach to Sensory Processing Disorder (2 hours)

A brief overview of STAR Institute’s evidence-based treatment approach, this course exposes participants to the both the procedural requirements and therapeutic principles of this treatment approach. Participants will view treatment videos and discuss the application of the PROCESS treatment approach in sensory-based treatment. It is recommended that participants already be familiar with the SPD Nosology (Miler et al., 2007) and sensory integration/processing treatment principles before attending this course. Learning objectives:

  • Define the seven procedural requirements that support PROCESS
  • Define the seven therapeutic principles of PROCESS
  • Identify application of PROCESS principles when viewing PROCESS based treatment

Webinar Series Part Four February 3rd

Introduction to Disordered Sensory Processing in Schools (2 hours)

This introductory course is appropriate for educators and school-based clinicians. Participants will be introduced to the concepts of neuro-diversity and divergency and their expressions and implications for the entire school experience. Participants receive an overview of the sensory systems, the SPD Nosology as developed by Dr. Lucy Jane Miller (2007), and the functional implications of the subtypes in students, an overview of the inter-connectedness of sensory processing-regulationrelationship, implications in school settings, and general strategies and application by RTI Tier.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define neuro-diverse and neuro-divergent
  • Define the subtypes of the SPD nosology and list three possible expressions for each in a school setting
  • Recognize the inter-connectedness of sensory processing, regulationrelationship in the school setting and functional implications for students
  • List 2-3 strategies for each RTI tier
