This is an online event.
About the event
From fidget toys and weighted blankets to low-sensory shopping experiences and sensory integration therapies, the word ‘sensory’ has become a huge area of public and academic interest.
Whilst this has been great for prompting public discussion about sensory needs, it hasn’t helped people better understand by what exactly we mean by ‘sensory’ or more specifically, sensory processing.
This session aims to cover:
- What is Sensory Processing and a brief history of the term
- An overview of the sensory systems and how they work
- Analysing results for use: connecting what it says to what you see
- Preparing results for use: how sensory strategies contribute to an ecosystem of supports
- Strategies: The What, The Why, The When/Where/How
- Equipping ourselves: Where to Buy, NDIS funding and How to Make
- Come and Problem-Solve: Question Time
