Everything you need to know about Sensory Modulation! This course starts with an introduction to sensory processing and arousal. Then we cover the seven senses, yes seven! Next, we look at the human nervous system but promise to make it simple! We move on to sensory modulation, including what sensory modulation is and what sensory modulation difficulties might look like in different children. Finally, we discuss ideas on how to help children with sensory processing difficulties. The modules are as follows.
Module 1 – Introduction to Sensory Processing & Modulation – What’s the Fuss?
Module 2 – What is sensory input and why is sensory input important?
Module 3 –What is arousal and what affects our arousal?
Modules 4 – 6 – An introduction to the seven senses.
Module 7 – How the brain integrates sensory input.
Module 8 – What is sensory modulation?
Modules 9 – 10 – The sensory modulation patterns including sensory sensitivity and sensory seeking.

Module 14 – Review and farewell.
