This course will give an introduction to sensory processing difficulties. It will provide an understanding of the sensory systems, how poor processing might affect your clients and how to start to make changes to help them.

    Course Aims

    The day will cover:

    • The 8 senses considered in sensory processing assessment.
    • How the way we process information from these underpins the way we behave and function in daily life.
    • A brief explanation of the neuroscience behind sensory processing theory and interventions.
    • Experiential tasks to understand how sensory processing difficulties may affect people and consider the range of difficulties people may present with.
    • Discussion on the range of interventions that can be offered and the difference between sensory strategies, sensory diets and sensory integration therapy.
    • Opportunities to look at commonly used sensory equipment and consider how it might benefit people.
    • Case studies to illustrate what sensory processing problems might look like.
    • What a sensory assessment would look like and the training required to be able to carry this out.
