This six hour course, starts at Level 1. Level 1 introduces the senses and sensory processing. Level 2 takes things to the next step. We explore sensory modulation in much further depth, including how differences may present at both home and school. We introduce the concept of arousal and consider how this impacts participation and learning. A framework for how to use sensory strategies is provided. There is also an additional section on sensory processing and autism for those who want to learn more. In Level 3 we explore strategies and supports you can use to help individuals who experience sensory processing differences. Level 3 includes access to Levels 1 and 2.
