Introduction to Sensory Processing

Raise your awareness and understanding of Sensory Processing differences.

"Very educational. I have learnt a lot even from a short introduction course. The way it was delivered and the knowledge that was shown was great from Kate. I kept thinking of different children that I work with and how they show hypersensitivity as well as hyposensitivity."

Did you know...

One in six children have sensory processing difficulties.

Children with Sensory Processing Disorder are faced with a range of difficulties related to perceiving the sensory world around them.

Sensory experiences can help children understand their environments and support them to feel safe and secure. A well-developed sensory system is essential for both cognitive and social intelligence and is therefore required for children to become successful learners.

Here's What You'll Learn

Introduction to the EIGHT Senses

Gain a comprehensive understanding of the sensory system beyond the commonly known five senses. Explore the additional senses involved in sensory processing, such as proprioception, vestibular, and interoception. Develop a solid foundation of knowledge about how these senses contribute to a child's perception, behaviour, and overall well-being.

Introduction to Sensory Processing

Acquire the skills to recognise and differentiate sensory differences in children. Explore the signs and symptoms of Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and understand how it can impact a child's daily functioning. Develop the ability to identify red flags and seek appropriate support and intervention for children with sensory processing challenges.

Introduction to Sensory Processing
Everyday Impact

Understand the critical role of the environment in supporting or hindering children with sensory processing needs. Learn how environmental factors, such as lighting, noise, and sensory stimuli, can affect a child's sensory experiences. Gain insights into creating sensory-friendly environments that promote optimal learning, comfort, and regulation for all children.

Introduction to Sensory Processing
Mental Health Considerations

Discover the profound impact that sensory processing challenges can have on a child's mental health and emotional well-being. Understand the connections between sensory difficulties and common mental health concerns, such as anxiety, attention difficulties, and self-regulation issues. Explore strategies to support the emotional well-being of children with sensory processing needs.

Introduction to Sensory Processing
Sensory-Related Behaviours

Expand your knowledge of the diverse range of sensory-related behaviours that children may exhibit. Explore how sensory processing challenges can manifest in behaviours such as sensory seeking, sensory aversions, and sensory overload.

Very Engaging.

"There was so much in the course that will be useful, both to myself and colleagues. As a school, our focus currently is Oracy, and the opening of the presentation helped me to focus on exactly where I need to focus activities and support. But the practical advice later, will be so useful for colleagues who are developing children's ability to communicate, regardless of ability.


The presenter, Sara, was very engaging, and clearly passionate about children and learning. having sat through so many zoom courses, and feeling a passenger, Sara really brought the subject to life and I felt fully engaged."
