Drawing on the research and experience of Dr Iona Bramati-Castellarin the course aims to analyse the impact of lack of sensory integration in the general paediatric population and behavioural and gastrointestinal dysfunction affecting autistic children. The course will give an overview of the signs and symptoms of Sensory Processing Disorders and Autism Spectrum Disorders as well as evidence for possible osteopathic interventions in both subjects. The course will explore how osteopathy may potentially improve the functioning of poorly integrated senses and a disrupted gut-brain axis. The course aims to increase your understanding and improve your skills in the possible application of a general osteopathic approach to sensory integration and visceral osteopathic techniques on autistic children suffering from gastrointestinal symptoms. There will be an opportunity for hands-on practical technique practice.
