Event description

Description

We all want our children or ourselves to be happy, learn, be successful and be able to adapt to our ever-changing environment. But, this can be challenging.

The “behind the scenes” skills we need to do this are managing our attention, arousal levels and behaviours. To do this we need to understand sensory processing. Our senses give us information about our body and the environment around us. The brain must organise all of these senses if you need to move and learn and behave normally. The brain locates, sorts, and orders sensation – something like a traffic policeman directing moving cars. When sensations flow in a well-organised or integrated manner, the brain can use those sensations to form perceptions, behaviours and learning. When the flow is not organised, life can be like peak hour traffic jam.

To maintain appropriate attention to tasks it is necessary to be able to self-regulate.

Focus of presentation:

  • Anxiety, anger and big emotions can be due to Sensory processing difficulties

  • How we process sensory input affects skills of children and adults

  • How complex it is and understanding the neurosciences background to help with ‘why’

  • What you can do to improve functioning and reduce distress
