Help My Sensory Needs

How to identify and support the different sensory needs of children (enhance learning and reduce challenging behaviour)

Do you want help to understand and identify a child's sensory needs?

Are you looking for practical ways to support children’s sensory regulation?

We all experience the world around us through our senses. How our brains process movement, colours, smells, textures, balance and sounds have an impact on how we interpret and respond to a situation.
For some children, bright lights or loud noises can be the trigger for difficult types of behaviour because of how discomforting it can be. Other individuals may have difficulty organising and making sense of sensory information.
It can sometimes be difficult to pinpoint the different sensory needs a child may have. So in this course, you will learn different examples of sensory needs from all of the 8 sensory systems and practical ways you can help and support.
I’ll show you step-by-step how to identify sensory needs and how to support sensory regulation through various proactive, practical strategies.
