About this course - Sensory Processing
Understanding how we make sense of the world around us and process this sensory information for meaning. The course will also look at exploring sensory difference for autistic individuals, and what practitioners should consider when looking at the environment.
This course has been developed to further our understanding of autism as a developmental difference. This course will deepen your understanding of typical and atypical development, and start to explore what is meant by a 'spiky developmental profile' in autism. You will also look at ‘self’ and how your understanding of an individual’s developmental profile informs your practice.
Course objectives are:
To better understand what we mean by sensory processing
To explore the influence of sensory processing differences on attention and wellbeing
To consider how sensory processing differences can be supported in practice
