Please note: this talk is just as relevant/applicable to boys as it is to girls.
This workshop looks at the sensory challenges that people have in addition to their ASD. This workshop covers the following topics:
- what are sensory processing difficulties?
- hyper vs hyposensitivites
- the impact of sensory difficulties on behaviour
- how do sensory sensory difficulties affect sleep, diet and exercise
- making the environment more comfortable
- individuals with ASD
- parents and families
- occupational therapists
- clinical professionals
Although we discuss young people and children, the workshops were not created for children. We don't want them to be bored during the workshop so if you do bring them please also bring their colouring books, iPads etc. and feel free to get up and go as much as you/they wish.
This event meets Continual Professional Development criteria at an intermediate level. Certificates will be provided after the event, upon request.
“I didn’t realise how much of an impact my son’s sensory system was having. He wasn’t able to articulate it to me and I hadn’t known for many years! Thank you so much Alis as I have not come across anything anywhere else that described it so succinctly for me to relate to.”
“A very important subject which is greatly neglected elsewhere.”
"It was a serious eye-opener."
If numbers for this workshop are low, we will have no choice but to cancel it. Please check your email inbox and spam one or two days before the workshop is due to run as we will send you an email if it has been cancelled.
