Sensory Processing Overview: Reaching a Common Understanding

{View Brochure}

Most parents and professionals are aware that many children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) have problems processing information from their sensory systems. They may be hyper-sensitive to sound, taste, touch, light, smell or apparently oblivious to them. Many demonstrate difficulties processing information from more than one sense at a time: "I can't look and listen to you at the same time." While research has not been conclusive in this field, many observers believe that sensory problems are responsible for unusual behaviours including hand-flapping; excessive spinning or rocking; unusual reactions when injured; and smelling of objects. Come to this full day workshop for an introduction to all the senses (perhaps even some you didn't know you had) and learn how you personally process sensory information. Learn how sensory processing is critical to our perception of the world an the ways in which sensory dysfunction can be problematic. Learn about and discuss ways to help your child.
