The objectives of this session are:
- To identify the 7 senses and how hyper and hypo sensitivity can present.
- To understand how sensory differences can impact behaviours.
- To learn strategies and develop “toolkits” for coping with the impact of sensory sensitivities.
Parents take part in activities that increase their knowledge about the senses and how their children may be affected due to their autism. Parents are encouraged to develop a sensory profile of their child, and to be able to use methods to help address those particular sensory needs.
