Course Description
 

To function and participate in the world that surrounds us, we need to use our different senses (touch, movement, sight, sound, body awareness and the pull of gravity) on a daily basis.

Our senses provide us with predictable experiences and allow us to interact and be involved with people and activities effortlessly in the normal course of the day.

Our senses also help us to understand the environment around us and respond appropriately within it. They play a significant role in determining what actions we take in a particular situation.

Take a moment to Imagine what happens when one, or all, of your senses are on ‘hyper-alert’ or are not working at all, often referred to as sensory integration dysfunction. This is the case for many individuals on the autism spectrum.
This course aims to share current knowledge and practical ideas to manage sensory issues in autism.
