Tonight (June 18 2015) we had our last Sensory Processing Network teleconference before the summer break. In attendance was Julie Lapointe, Director of Professional Practice who shared with us information regarding CAOT’s partnership with Autism Speaks.
We also discussed new initiatives including ‘Fact Sheets’ that our network would like to develop related to feeding, sleeping, dressing and vocation and the relationship with sensory processing. Network members agreed it would be great to start working on information related to these areas to share with the public. Two more recent studies (2013 & 2014) on sensory processing of individuals with SPD will be posted on the CAOT website in the near future.
Thanks to all who attended the last meeting and wishing you well until our next SP Network meeting in the fall!
Have a great summer!!
