Do you want to build your ‘sensory empathy’? Our sensations impact all aspects of our lives and function, including emotional regulation and new learning. This workshop will help you learn to identify the different types of sensory inputs that we manage every day, and to give you a better ‘sense’ of how your children and loved ones are impacted by their sensory experiences. This workshop may be helpful for: Parents and Caregivers, Teachers and Health Professionals.
