Would you like help understanding and identifying the sensory needs of a child?

How about practical ways to support children’s sensory regulation?

This course will teach you a step-by-step guide to:
The 8 different sensory systems
Real-life examples of sensory seeking and sensory sensitivities
Practical ways to support children through proactive sensory stimulation and regulation activities

We all experience the world around us through our senses. How we process movement, colours, smells, textures, balance and the sounds around us have an important impact on how we interpret and respond to a situation or task. 

For some children, bright lights or loud noises can be the catalyst for difficult types of behaviour because of how discomforting it can be. 
This is to do with their sensory processing; something which differs from person to person.

We all experience the sensory input around us in different ways.

For some individuals, they may have difficulty organising and making sense of sensory information.
It can sometimes be difficult pinpointing the different sensory needs a child may have. So in this training, you will learn different examples of sensory needs from all of the 8 sensory systems and how you can help and support.

To better understand sensory needs, I invite you to join the course
Help Support My Sensory Processing
In this short course, you will gain knowledge of the 8 sensory systems enabling you to identify diverse sensory needs of children.

I'll show you step-by-step how to identify sensory needs and how to support sensory regulation through various proactive, practical strategies. This includes ways to support children and their learning, through sensory regulation activities, adapting environments and with the use of sensory resources.

You will learn fun and diverse ways to implement sensory supports throughout the day that will support regulation, ensuring children are ready to learn!

After the course you will:
have a greater understanding of different sensory needs and the 8 sensory systems
be equipped with practical ways in which you can support an individual's sensory regulation
have the confidence to implement sensory regulation strategies immediately
