Making Sense of Sensory Integration

This workshop provides parents and professionals with an understanding of how each of the different sensory systems function and the impact they can have upon a child's ability to successfully participate in everyday activities and how children with sensory inefficiencies can be identified.

This workshop provides the grounding for managing attention difficulties using sensory strategies as explored in the Getting Control of your engine" workshop. The ability to process sensory information assists in building the foundation for the following: Development of co-ordination - we use information from our senses to judge the timing of our movements and the force that we apply. Social skills - to effectively interact with others we must read their verbal and non-verbal signals accurately and adjust our responses accordingly. Ability to pay attention - which is an integral part of being able to learn, as we need to select what is important to pay attention to and what is not.
