2.Select interventions based on interdisciplinary roles and needs assessed for specific sensory processing impairments.

3.Describe how the body and mind take in information and how reception translates into appropriate action.

4.Formulate a comprehensive plan to increase function, engagement and participation in daily activities across a variety of settings.

5.Incorporate dynamic and interactive techniques to improve attention, engagement and interaction.

6.Identify ways to support play and learning experiences with technology and interactive media.
