When: Wednesday 12 August 2020
As the global effect of coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, Adoption Matters is firmly committed to the health and safety of our staff, our families and the colleagues we work with across the UK. We are closely monitoring the changing situation and complying with the latest Government and public health guidance.
In line with this latest guidance and to ensure the well-being of attendees and our team, we have adapted many of our events to be delivered virtually online.
About this workshop:
What are sensory processing issues? The term refers to difficulties managing information that comes through the senses. These issues, some-times called sensory processing disorder or sensory integration disorder, can have a big impact on the learning and on everyday life of the child.
We will explore two types of sensory processing challenges; over sensitivity (hypersensitivity), which leads to sensory avoiding and under sensitivity (hyposensitivity), which causes children to be sensory seeking. We would love to see you at this workshop, where you will receive expert advice and experienced parental insights, strategies to use at home, and information on best support for your child at school. This workshop will be presented by an occupational therapist from the Centre for Adoption Support and will feature opportunities to share experiences with other adoptive parents.
