Jennifer Bullock, PT, OCS, PRC was the first speaker Ron invited to speak at this year’s symposium, after he learned of her personal and clinical experience with sensory and auditory processing disorders. As Jennifer will discuss in her presentation, she personally has been diagnosed with auditory processing disorder, and she has also two children that are affected by auditory processing disorder and sensory processing disorder. Her presentation title is “Do You Hear What I Hear? A Personal Experience with Sensory and Auditory Processing Disorder.”
Jennifer graduated from the University of Texas Medical Branch with a Bachelor’s degree in Physical Therapy in 1992. She is currently enrolled at Texas Women’s University completing the transitional Doctorate in Physical Therapy program. Jennifer is employed at Texas Health in Allen, TX in the outpatient PT department, where she works with a variety of neurological, orthopedic, and lymphatic diagnoses. Jennifer is an Orthopedic Certified Specialist (OCS), Postural Restoration Certified (PRC) and Lymphatic Certified. She is also a trained provider for The Listening Program® (TLP), a music listening method, personalized to improve brain fitness at any age or level of ability.
Jennifer’s presentation will focus on how Sensory Processing Disorder and Auditory Processing Disorder effect the ability for the human body to organize stimulus. When organization of incoming stimulus is decreased, then resulting limitations occur in the body such as decreased ROM and neuromuscular strength. Strategies to help the body organize incoming stimulus will be presented by the use of hearing and music and therefore promote improved organization and neuromuscular control.
