In this podcast I interview sensory processing expert, Lindsey Biel. Lindsey Biel, OTR/L, is a pediatric occupational therapist with a private practice in New York City who evaluates and treats children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders, sensory processing issues, developmental delays, physical disabilities and other challenges. Her latest book is Sensory Processing Challenges: Effective Clinical Work with Kids & Teens, published by W.W. Norton.
Here we discuss important sensory processing issues for parents and caregivers to become aware of, and what can be done about them, so that they can better help children .
In this interview we address many questions parents ask such as:
What are the different types of sensory processing disorders that a person can have?
What can be done about it?
Who helps with these issues?
How does a parent or individual contact them?
How to work with schools and teachers.
What are Epraxia and dyspraxia?
What is an IEP and how do I get one at my child’s school?
