Parent Training: Understanding the Sensory System

Join us for a 4 week parent training series on sensory processing/integration.  What does sensory processing mean and how can you help your child?  Facilitated by our experienced occupational and physical therapists, parents and caregivers will learn about various parts of the sensory system, as well as strategies to implement in the home. Individual questions encouraged.  Parents should attend without their children.

Week 1: Overview of Sensory: What does sensory integration mean including terms and definitions.

Week 2: What to Look For in My Child: How do I recognize sensory needs in my child.

Week 3: How can I Help: Organization and implementation of strategies at home.

Week 4: Self-awareness Surrounding Senses:  Experience your own sensory system to better help your child.  Dress comfortably as you will be engaging in techniques and use of equipment.

This program takes place at AutismUp.
