Britt Collins:  I want to welcome and thank you for joining us for our presentation today.  If you have any questions throughout the presentation, please feel free to type them in the box and I will answer them as they come up or if you want to wait until the end, I can answer them then as well. 

I wanted to start off with some SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) facts.  I did a presentation last month on sensory strategies in the home and went through a lot of the SPD subtypes on OccupationalTherapy.com.  If you have any questions or you want to know more information about those, you can view that in the course library.  Today we are going to jump right into treatment strategies after we review these.

There is a dynamic relationship between people, their occupations and roles and the environments in which they live, work and play. When disability disrupts the engagement in occupation, all areas of life are at risk for impaired performance and quality of life. Pediatric disabilities can create family impairment, isolation, and stigma. Occupational therapy practitioners must view childhood disabilities as a stressor within an interconnected system within the family that can affect health-related quality of life outcomes for the child. This first webinar in a 3 part series will provide an introduction and overview of the concept of Family Quality of Life.
