Do you find your child is very sensitive to noise?
Do they have a very high or low threshold to pain?
Do they struggle with buttons or climbing the stairs?
Sensory processing refers to the way our central nervous system
- receives information from our senses (movement, touch, smell, taste, vision and hearing),
- organises that information and
- then turns it into appropriate responses.
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a result of neurological disorganisation that affects the information received, organised and processed by the central nervous system. Children with SPD may have difficulty sitting, be overly sensitive to noise, clothing or touch and/or have social and emotional problems. SPD also affects a child’s ability to complete everyday tasks such as learning, bathing, dressing, eating, going to the toilet or participating in leisure activities.
In this practical and interactive workshop Dolly will provide information on various communication strategies that can be used to support children with Sensory Processing Disorder.
