Making Sense of the Senses - Understanding Sensory Integration
Thu. 20 April 2017, 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm AEST
Does your child have trouble sitting still? Put non edible objects in their mouth? Fidget? Make noise for noise sake? Take excessive risks in play? Have melt downs over small things like noises and clothes tags? Have fussy eating patterns? Have trouble with sleep? Struggle with social skills? Have difficulties with coordination? Have auditory processing difficulties? If you have answered yes to any of these questions it is likely your child has sensory processing challenges.
Sensory processing skills form the foundation upon which your child does all of their developing and learning. Yet, this topic remains largely unknown and misunderstood. Paediatric Occupational Therapist, Hannah Gamble will explain how the sensory system works and what the developmental and behavioural implications are when your child is not processing sensory input well. In addition, you will hear how to maximize your children's ability to learn at preschool and school as well as pick up some tricks on how to settle your children when they are wild! Don't miss out on this unique opportunity better understand your children, their behaviours and unique styles of learning.
This workshop is aimed at Early Childhood Educators, Primary School Staff and Parents
