Autism and Sensory Processing 

 
 

Sensory processing refers to the ability of a young person to register, interpret and respond to sensory information. This is a complex process involving all the sensory systems (auditory, gustatory, visual, olfactory, tactile, proprioception, vestibular and interoception). When sensory processing is working well, a young person can engage in daily functional activities and social interaction. Sensory processing differences are prevalent in autistic young people and can affect every aspect of daily life. 

 

This session examines these sensory processing differences and will demonstrate how such differences impact on learning, leisure activities and choices, social interactions, and life skills in school and home settings. 

 

Expected Outcomes 

Participants will: 

  • Develop an understanding of sensory processing differences. 

  • Understand how sensory processing differences can affect the young person’s experience in school, home, and other settings. 

  • Understand how sensory processing difference can specifically affect an autistic young person and their participation in daily activities. 

  • Develop an understanding of modifications and supports to accommodate sensory processing differences in daily activities at school, home and beyond
