For children and young people with sensory processing difficulties, information received through the senses does not make the same connections that it does for everyone else which creates challenges in performing countless everyday tasks.
This training has been developed by TADSS practitioners who have a wealth of experience and knowledge of ways to understand, support and teach pupils with sensory needs. The training aims to increase staff awareness, confidence and effectiveness. It will cover:
- An overview of the 7 areas of the sensory system.
- Behaviours students may show if they have difficulties in any of these areas.
- Ideas for strategies and resources, including examples of resources.
- Suggestions for further research, books, websites and DVDs.
Led by: Jen Griffin, Sensory Subject Leader and Early Years Leader, Westfield Arts College.
