Autism and Sensory Processing

One day course that gives delegates an insight into the world of autism, developing a greater understanding of why people with autism may behave in a certain way and what we can do to support them. We begin by separating the myths from the facts about autism. Moving on to identify the three main areas of difficulty and how people with autism learn, communicate and interact.

The day moves into an explanation of Sensory Processing Difficulties and how this relates to people with autism. This section is quite practical and interactive.
For most of us, for most of the time, this is an automatic process and our resulting actions are appropriate to the situation and to society in general. For individuals with sensory processing difficulties (the autistic community make up a large proportion of people struggling with these difficulties), the process can be very different. This course looks at how information is taken in through the senses, processed, organised and made sense of and then responded too.

We identify the possible triggers for behaviours that challenge and provide delegates with strategies, interventions and ideas to pre-empt difficulties and to support positive behaviour.
