The Sensory Toolbox – Supporting the sensory needs of children

Supporting the sensory needs of children to make them happier and more confident learners A fascinating course designed to teach participants about the key role the senses play in all aspects of children’s development. Participants will learn about how the sensory system works and how the individual senses impact on children’s ability to function in settings. They will understand the link between sensory needs and challenging behaviour and be able to identify ‘sensory overload’ in children. Participants will gain a ‘toolbox’ of practical ways of support children’s sensory needs including ‘sensory sessions’ ‘a sensory diet’. Participants will leave with a Sensory Audit tool to take back and audit their environment.

All practitioners wanting to develop their understanding of ‘sensory needs’ in children with SEND and how these impact on both their development and their ability to function within their setting.
