Do you have the right sensory environments and approaches to help reduce challenging behaviour and improve an individual’s learning opportunities?
At the end of the day you will:
- identify links between past experiences, social/environmental factors and challenging behaviour
identify sensory regulation problems and reduce their impact upon behaviour
modify a classroom, day room or living space to support those with sensory issues
use sensory strategies to help individuals make ‘sense’ of their environment
create sensory activities that provide individuals with the personal skills to manage the causes of their challenging behaviour
use sensory approaches to reduce anxiety
create a focused and purposeful sensory room for individuals with challenging behaviour
This informative day uses a mixture of detailed presentations, illustrative video & practical demonstration. There will also be small group discussion to explore relevant issues. Questions from the delegates are positively encouraged!
