Improve understanding and how to support a person with sensory processing disorder or sensory management issues.

What is sensory processing? How does it affect the senses? How can it be recognised? How can we better support a person with the condition? Our Sensory Processing Disorder Course provides an understanding of the condition, including the symptoms and behaviours associated with it. It will also explore diagnosis and recognition of the difficulties as well as explore therapies and interventions to improve support and wellbeing of those experiencing sensory challenges

Sensory Processing Disorder (formerly known as sensory integration dysfunction) describes a difference in the way that some people’s senses are processed by the brain. Sensory Processing Disorder is a complex disorder of the brain that affects at least one in twenty people in the general population.
