21st April 18
Combined Sensory Difficulties and Sensory Strategies Course
Venue: DCLP, , 5 Shelmore Drive, Dingle, Liverpool, L8 4YL
10am – 3pm
The course will be delivered by Lisa Hamer who is an occupational therapist and advanced practitioner in sensory integration.
The aim of the course is to provide attendees with an introduction to sensory processing disorder (SPD). Through interactive and visual learning sessions attendees will get the opportunity to experience and reflect upon the everyday challenges that children and young people with SPD encounter. Attendees will then go on to explore in more detail practical support strategies to support children and young people with sensory processing difficulties.
Attendees will complete work sheets encouraging them to think about sensory diet activities and a framework that may support the child with their sensory needs. On completing the course attendees will be able to begin to distinguish between ‘behaviour’ and the characteristics of SPD. They will also, using the worksheet identify some of the child’s sensory seeking/ avoiding behaviours and strategies and activities that may support the child within home, school and community settings.
