Summary of the course
Autistic children often have differences in the way they regulate their senses and may need support. Sensory Processing Difficulties are now part of the diagnostic criteria for Autism. Behaviour responses can be a result of avoiding or seeking out sensory experiences and most autistic children will benefit from a sensory assessment from which a sensory diet can be put in place.
- Help staff to understand the eight sensory systems and how Autistic children may be affected by over or under sensitivity
- Learn about sensory overload in the environment and internal processing
- Learn about sensory regulation and go away with many practical ways of supporting this in the classroom
- Look at what kind of assessment can be made and how to implement a sensory diet from an assessment done by a relevant professional
