Outline

This course is for EYFS practitioners, EYFS leaders, SENCO’s, TA’s / SLA’s, Childminders. This course is run in two parts with each session running for 3 hours

Description

Day 1 Sensory processing differences have been said to co-occur in 80 – 95% of the population with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ADS). However, you do not need a diagnosis of ASD to have a sensory processing difference. Sensory processing abilities and responses to sensory experiences vary between individuals and can have a significant impact on their performance of activities of daily living (e.g. self-care, school and play occupations).
The focus of the first part of this course is to explain sensory processing and the ‘red flags’ you may notice. Sensory modulation is described as the ability to register, regulate and adapt to sensory information from both the internal and external environments in order to respond (behave) in a way that meets the demands of the task and the environment. A child’s ability to modulate sensory information can significantly impact on their arousal level, attention, activity level, behaviour, emotional regulation and thus performance of daily occupations. For example do you have a child / children in your setting who are unable to concentrate / difficulty joining in with circle time / have meltdowns for no apparent reason / don’t like messy play or respond aggressively towards others?
The second part of the course will focus on supports for children within their contextual environment:
  • Increase understanding of sensory processing and emotional regulation and its impact on function
  • Problem-solve difficulties
  • Share ideas, issues and concerns with others
  • Identification of strategies you can try to support your child
Day 2 Enabling participation in nursery based tasks
Do you know and understand how a child's gross & fine motor skills develop and "what" they should do by "which" age? In the workshop we will briefly discuss a child's functional gross and fine motor skill development and how we can support these in the nursery setting.
