2 Half-Day Workshop

Seminar: Handling Sensory Issues in the Classroom

Sensory Integration plays a fundamental role in development, attention and behavioural organization. For children with issues in sensory integration, they may have difficulty in processing / organizing sensory information for use. With that, they may be overwhelmed by certain sensory stimuli in their environment easily and may display some socially inappropriate behavior, such as being fidgety and hyperactive, being clumsy, fear of noises, over-reaction to being touched, nail biting, gaze avoidance, etc. This 1-day workshop is designed for teachers and parents of preschool and early primary school children with dysfunction in sensory integration, such as those autism, attention deficit, hyperactivity, learning difficulties, etc. The concepts of sensory integration will be introduced and simple strategies that can use to overcome sensorimotor issues in the classroom will be discussed.
