Beyond 90/90/90: Seating and Access
Location: Altamonte Springs
Presenter(s): Karen Kangas,OTR/L
Double Down Arrow
Description:

Access remains the number one “problem” for so many of the children we serve, who have complex needs.  However, accessibility to the environment has been extremely limited for many children due to their current “correct” seating. Sensory processing directly affects visual convergence, focus and attention, and postural control.  To assist children in better “access” to assistive technology we must also better understand how their bodies work, and what types of seating equipment is needed.  Ms. Kangas will share strategies and equipment which work with children to support and provide them with increased awareness and use of sensory processing within their seating systems in order to support functional use of their AT systems.
