Beyond 90/90/90: Positioning and Access to Support Inclusion

Uploaded: August 6, 2014 |  0 Comments  | 

Sensory processing directly affects visual convergence, focus and attention, and postural control. To assist children to be able to access and engage in independent activity, we must also better understand how their bodies work, and what types of seating equipment is needed. Access and demonstration of functional control remain as primary problems for many children. However, access and accessibility to specific assistive technology as well as the environment and activity is frequently severely limited for children due to their current “correct” seating. This session will share strategies to provide children with increased awareness and use of sensory processing within their seating systems so that increased task engagement and independent control can be observed and maximized.
