Event description
What is Sensory Processing Disorder?

About this Event

Our Workshop will explore the sensory system to demonstrate how it can impact on a child’s behaviour and their interactions with the world around them.

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will commonly display sensitivities to sound or light or perhaps they may produce a physical response to their environment around them.

These are examples of sensory processing, a term that refers to the way the nervous system receives sensory messages and turns them into responses. It is a neurological process whereby the brain organises and interprets information from the senses.

By understanding sensory processing, you will gain insights into your child’s sensory needs and will learn techniques to implement at home.

This Workshop will cover:

• Understanding the definition of sensory processing and sensory processing deficits

• Understanding the seven sensory systems

• Identifying different patterns of sensory dysfunction and sensory processing difficulties

• Basic skills for supporting those sensory processing difficulties

• Developing an awareness of Sensory vs. Behaviour

• Understanding the role of Occupational Therapy

This Workshop is suitable for parents of children displaying sensitivities to the world around them, as well as complimentary service providers, clinical professionals or carers working with these children.

Presented by Prachi Dadia, Occupational Therapist.
