Webinar Outline

When we think of all the things we hope for our children - to learn, to experience and to become - we can take for granted certain basic requirements. We assume that they will be able to listen to us, to attend for a period of time and to be calm enough or awake enough to participate in learning experiences. Without these basic ingredients, our efforts, no matter how creative and enthusiastic, will meet with limited success. 'Making sense of sensory processing' will consider some of the basic ingredients or building blocks children need in order to be focussed and engaged learners, including: What are the seven senses and their impact on learning? What is sensory processing, modulation and regulation? and How can we support our children's sensory systems both at school and home?
