The video below is a recording of a presentation from the Adult Down Syndrome Center's Healthy Me, Healthy You, Healthy Us Conference held on April 6, 2019. The presenters are Katie Frank, PhD, OTR/L (occupational therapist at the Center), Maddy Gillespie, and Maddy's mother Randi. Sensory processing impacts all of us, but for many individuals with Down syndrome, the inability to control their sensory processing needs can impact their independence and community participation. Practical sensory strategies that can be incorporated daily as well as situationally to help with challenging activities (such as blood draws, haircuts, and dental visits) are discussed. The presentation slides can be viewed at this link.
