A Sensory Intervention Using Precision Colored Filters

This presentation provides information on how a brain-based intervention can reduce sensory overload, enabling the brain to process visual information, resulting in improvements in behavior, social interaction, and communication. Visual processing deficits impose limitations on functioning. Simple environmental modifications for the home and the classroom will be provided. Minimizing sensory bombardment should be an essential intervention and part of the treatment program for many with ASD.
