This short course is aimed at all those with an interest in the care and education of children and young people. It is of particular relevance to parents or guardians, child minders, nursery staff, teachers, SENCOs, teaching assistants and paediatric health care professionals.
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.
Further to this, practical support strategies will be explored for both the home and school environments. On completing the course attendees will be able to begin to distinguish between ‘behaviour’ and the characteristics of SPD.
