Event description

Description

The aim of this session is to understand sensory differences in autism and develop best practice to enable accessible environments in hospitals, health centres, dentists and general practice.

The content covered will be:

* introduction to the Sensory Behaviour Scale (Harrison and Harre, 2004)

* a summary of the Equalities Act 2010 and ideas for best practice in reasonable adjustments

By the end of the session you will have learnt:

1) how to apply evidence from research to support reasonable adjustments for a person/people with autism

2) developed skills in understanding personalised planning by using a Sensory Behaviour Scale as a rationale for planned activities and support
