‘Just Right Kids’ Sensory Processing Workshop

May 14 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm UTC+10

 

Do you know a child who struggles with…?

  • Behavioural difficulties
  • Emotional meltdowns
  • Self-regulation difficulties
  • Concentrating
  • Learning difficulties at home and in class

The ‘Just Right Kids’ Sensory Processing Workshop can help!

Presented by Occupational Therapist Deb Hopper.  Deb will explain how sensory processing works and how it effects your child’s behaviour at home, school and in family life.

When you leave this workshop you will understand what sensory processing is, how it effects children and how to identify sensory difficulties in children. You will take home strategies that you can begin to use straight away to help the children in your life. You can network with other parents and carers where you can obtain ongoing support.

This workshop is for parents and carers supporting children on the autism spectrum in the early and primary school years.
