Managing Sensory Processing At Home - NEW COURSE
In response to a great deal of demand, we’ve created a course for parents and carers explaining sensory processing difficulties and how they can be managed at home.
Aimed at parents, carers, foster families, adoptive parents and adoption agency staff, this compact, online course employs plain English; easy-to-understand examples; animations and illustrations; fun quizzes; and interactive elements. It includes ideas on how to accommodate a child’s sensory needs at home, as well as signposting many useful resources. The course also outlines what help qualified sensory integration therapists can offer.
At about an hour in length, this course would make a great resource for therapy clients or a continuing professional development training session for adoption/foster agency staff. As well as being available directly to individuals, you can purchase the course in multiples of five to pass on access codes to clients or staff.
We want as many people as possible to better understand sensory processing, so we’ve priced the course to simply cover our administration and hosting costs. At only £5 this course is highly accessible and also includes free Bronze Membership to SIE for the people registering on the course.
