An Introduction to Sensory Processing Difficulties
with Nerys Hughes WCT Founder and Clinical Director
6th March & 9th October 2017 at the Conservatoire, Blackheath
In this workshop we explore sensory processing difficulties and look at how they can make every day tasks challenging for children. The workshop provides strategies to reduce the impact of these difficulties, laying the foundations of a supportive environment at school and at home.
This workshop is aimed at teachers, support staff, clinicians and families who are looking to understand how sensory processing disorders can affect so many of the children we know and work with.
