Course description

Sensory processing is the way we process information we receive from the environment and our bodies and then use this information to respond appropriately.

We all have sensory differences and preferences.  Some of us like very strong tastes and smells like spicy foods, garlic, blue cheese, whilst others avoid them.  Some people enjoy a day of going on as many roller coaster rides as they can, whilst others would avoid even a slow roundabout or swing.  As long as we can manage to take part in the things we want and need to do these sensory professing differences don't matter or need support.  It only becomes a problem if they impact on our ability to carry out the activities we need to do.

For some children their sensory development is delayed or disordered, and this impacts on their ability to take part in everyday childhood occupations.  A child might be so distressed by noise, they miss out on a friend's party or avoid the busy parts of the playground, missing out on opportunities to practise and develop their motor skills.  A child may hit out when someone brushes up against them when lining up or sitting near them at carpet time as they experience it as painful.
