Description

Little Lessons Australia is proud to announce a seminar with

Kelly Kroeger, Director of Learn Sense Grow & Paediatric Occupational Therapist

Event Title: 'Sensory Processing in the School Environment'

This workshop is aimed at educators and professionals working with children ages (4-13 years). The sensory information will apply to all age ranges and the tools and principles will also apply to all age ranges. However, the older children will require a more independent program approach, to ensure engagement is met.

What impact do our senses have on our learning?

Learn the fundamentals of sensory processing theory and take away strategies to improve attention, calmness, co-operation and behaviour. This course gives a basic understanding of Sensory Processing Disorder for educators and professionals working with children who have, or present with Sensory Processing issues.

The key learning objectives of this workshop include:

  • To have a better understanding about the important role our sensory systems play in our daily lives

  • To learn about our “hidden senses”

  • To understand what sensory processing is

  • To learn about Sensory Processing Disorders and its subtypes

  • To gain a better understanding about how this presents behaviourally and what it might look like.

  • To learn tools and strategies to address the different subtypes, as well as, the different sensory systems, to help assist a child to reach a calm-alert state.

About Kelly: Kelly completed her Occupational Therapy degree receiving high honours and the chancellor’s award for her achievements. Kelly’s passion to assist and teach children strategies to reach their full potential and interact within their environment has led her to work in Paediatrics and the establishment of her business, ‘Learn Sense Grow.’ Kelly strongly believes that working with children in their most common environments, school and/or home, are where we can make the biggest differences, using affordable and simple tools. Kelly has opened up a “play space” this year and offers unique programs to families including, ‘The Alert Program’, The Listening Program’, ‘The Movement Program’ plus more. Kelly has presented at many schools and consulted with national childcare centres on Sensory Processing Disorders and Sensory Integration, as well as, setting up specialised sensory rooms in some of these environments. It is her passion to spread awareness of sensory processing and the simplicity of giving sensory input to the child within their environments to assist them to concentrate, focus and attend.
