The Irish Society for Disability and Oral Health are proud to present the third and last of this season's ISDH Winter Webinars series. This Webinar is delivered by an International expert on Dental Care for people with autism: Heather Coulter Jackson RDH. Heather is a Dental Hygienist who works with the world renowned Clive Freedman and Timucin Ari in Pediatric Oral Health and Dentistry, London, Ontario, Canada. She is also a registered Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist at OMT London. Heather is well-known Internationally as a leader in behaviour support for people with disabilities. Her recent talk at the IADH International conference received a hugely positive response. This is an amazing opportunity for our community to learn from the best.
After the webinar, it is expected that participants will:
• Describe the challenges faced by patients with sensory processing disorders such as autism in the dental office.
• Describe how theoretical components of behaviour support are applied in vivo by applying the patient guided sensory integration programme.
• Apply aspects of the patient guided sensory integration programme in their clinic.
