What will you learn?

In this workshop, we will explore Dunn's Sensory Processing Framework and the evidence supporting a strengths based sensory processing approach to care in children's everyday contexts.  We will discuss behaviours associated with sensory processing in home, community and at school contexts. 

We will examine the role of sensory processing patterns for children with conditions such as Autism and cerebral palsy, and practice how to write and talk about strengths and sensory processing with families, teachers and other colleagues.

One of the emerging evidence based practices is coaching and we will summarise the key principles of coaching, watch video examples and practice coaching with each other.
