This one-day course will support delegates to try and understand more about the sensory world of people on the autism spectrum. Exploring the sensory systems and sensory processing, potential differences in autism will be discussed, and the impact these may have on daily life and behaviour. Delegates will be supported to be more confident in identifying and making changes to practice which will positively support the sensory needs of people on the autism spectrum.
This course is suitable for those wishing to increase their understanding of the potential sensory differences experienced by both children and adults with autism. A basic understanding of autism is required for this course.
