Vision

Our vision is for all to understand the role of sensory processing in early human development

We believe that sensation is the primary factor in early brain development and in all human behaviours

Sensations underpin our earliest occupations of regulation, relationships, sleep, feeding, playing, moving and learning

Objectives

- To promote understanding of sensory development from conception

- To explore the role of sensation in brain development from conception

- To discuss theories, models, current research and assessments to understand sensory processing and sensory environments.

- To consider behavioural cues as a means of understanding sensory regulation and facilitate the provision of the just right sensory environment.

- To understand how sensory development and the sensory environments facilitate childhood occupations.

Values

Family focused, inclusive, supportive, open and connected

Mission

Our mission is to provide high quality, evidence based education available to professionals working in neonatal care, early childhood settings and everyone who has an interest in sensory processing and the role it plays in development, occupations and relationships.

Our training will promote discussion and consideration of the importance of sensory experiences and sensory environments in early human development and how we can use sensation to provide the best to start to life.
