For Teachers, Parents & Carers
For some people, special challenges in sensory integration and processing interfere with everyday life more for other children. Neurodiversity can make learning harder if a person’s unique sensory preferences and needs are not well understood, or easily communicated. Illness, disease, genes inherited and trauma can interfere with sensory integration and processing and can impact on early development, learning, and participation in everyday life across the lifespan.
However, the mind-body-brain are plastic and flexible! Humans are able to develop and learn, especially when ‘just- right’ sensory spaces and specially crafted learning opportunities are created to match each person unique sensory needs. When this happens, the person is able to grow and live life to their maximum potential. This is something we can all work to create for those around us, those we support, and those we provide care or education for, using the power of the senses. Our online workshops and webinars are all about doing just that.
This learning is applicable to anyone, anywhere, though it may be more essential for some who help and support those where sensory integration and processing differences make life more tricky.
sensory integration is everyones’ business | no one left behind
For Health, Education & Social Care Teams
Our in-house workshops for health, social care and special education professionals will provide an opportunity to develop individualised sensory strategies; including the use of personalised Sensory Ladders, Sensory Spiders and Sensory Grids to understand and support participation and engaement, communication and self-regulation.
Practical activities, videos and real case studies will be used to enhance understanding and demonstrate application within adolescent, adult and older adults mental health and learning disability services. The effect of trauma and early deprivation will be considered, with evidence from current neuroscience.
