Occupational therapy and self-injurious behaviour in children with neurological conditions

Register by 10:59 a.m. (Eastern Time) on May 26, 2020

Presented by: Courtney Hall & Mary Glasgow Brown

Occupational therapists work with children who experience self-injurious behaviour (SIB) and neurological conditions such as autism spectrum disorder or genetic syndromes. The role of the occupational therapist is key in providing recommendations related to safety, equipment, vehicle transportation, regulation and occupations.

Referencing a multi-disciplinary SIB clinic, this webinar will provide insight into the challenges that children with SIB and their families face. These include: physiological risks, the impact on occupational participation, and the strain on families. Participants will gain insight into the role of the occupational therapist as well as other key team members working with children who exhibit SIB.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe self-injurious behaviour (SIB) within the pediatric population.
  2. Understand the role of occupational therapy for children who exhibit SIB.
  3. Identify key resources, including team members, equipment and support for families.
