Autism and Sensory Processing
This full day training on Sensory Processing has been tailored for the needs of professionals working in school settings who wish to expand their knowledge of autism and sensory needs.  The training will examine the different patterns of responses to sensory input and their impact on autistic children and young people.  Participants will be encouraged to examine the sensory factors, which can affect engagement in learning, interaction and all daily activities.  The relationship between sensory responsiveness and emotional regulation will also be explored.  Intervention strategies to support autistic students in meeting their sensory needs will be described, including Sensory Diets, desensitisation, creating calm spaces and the use of sensory resources.  Although the training will be delivered online, it will be a live and interactive session with the opportunity to ask questions and engage in-group discussions.
