We all learn through our senses and when they work together they give us a reliable picture of the world and our place in it.
BUT – what happens when you experience out of proportion reactions to touch, sounds, sights, movement, tastes or smells?
WHAT IF – you have motor and body awareness difficulties, poor attention, and are either a bouncy Tigger or a laid back Eeyore?
This workshop will give you an understanding of what Sensory Processing Disorder is.
We’ll explore the Sensory System, have some practical experiences of the sensory processing difficulties that some children face each day, and suggest ideas to try to help cope with Sensory Difficulties
