ISIT 2 | Infant Regulatory Disorders of Mood, Sleep and Feeding
Infant Sensory Integration Training (ISIT) 2 builds on the foundational ISIT 1. The course unpacks self-regulation as a developmental process that starts in utero. Throughout the first 5 years of life, little ones learn how to self-regulate their mood, sleep and feeding. Self-regulation is a critical skill that develops in the context of inherent factors (Sensory Integration) and extrinsic factors (relationship).
This course delves into the three key areas of self-regulation in infancy and toddlers – mood, sleep and feeding. You will deepen your understanding how typically developing babies self-regulate these three areas. You will also learn how to identify infant regulatory disorders of mood, sleep and feeding.
Is the ISIT 2 | Infant Regulatory Disorders of Mood, Sleep and Feeding for you?
Infant Sensory Integration Training (ISIT) 2 will empower you with the science-based knowledge and practical learnings of how to treat “fussy” babies. You will also have the tools and strategies you need to guide parents on how to manage these areas of self-regulation.
ISIT 2 is presented by OT & SI specialist, Meg Faure.
