Autistic individuals experience sensory information in very unique ways, including over-sensitivity, under-sensitivity or poor modulation.  Whilst sensory differences can often be enjoyable for autistic individuals, they can also have a profound effect on a person’s life, causing significant distress in coping with daily life.

This workshop will cover:

  • Our senses and how they work
  • Insight into the sensory differences experienced by autistic individuals
  • Signs of sensory overload and sensory seeking behaviour
  • The importance of understanding an individual’s sensory profile
  • Strategies to create sensory-friendly environments in home, school or community
  • Opportunity to make some sensory resources
  • Strategies to teach individuals to self-regulate their arousal levels
