Course # 56671 • Sensory Processing Disorder: Impact on Care

Overview

The number of children and adults diagnosed with sensory processing disorder (SPD) and autism spectrum disorder is climbing each day. It is an issue that can span the lifetime of a patient, and a patient of any age and with any diagnosis can have sensory processing issues. It is the clinician's responsibility to understand and know best how to deal with the fears and anxieties of these patients so even the most routine health care can be suited to their needs. However, many clinicians have not had a chance to learn about the special needs of these patients. This course will assist dental providers to develop an appreciation for SPD and the delivery of dental care from the point of view of these patients.
