INTRODUCING A BRAND NEW CHILD MENTAL HEALTH INTERVENTION ACCREDITED TRAINING!!!
This training is a brand new intervention to help children with sensory processing difficulties with/out autism, as it’s widely known that children with autism are four times more likely to suffer with anxiety. Sensory processing can be recognised as being a big problem for children with autism especially in the school environment due to the overwhelming sensory experiences for children, which can lead to explosive meltdowns and other distress.
This online full day accredited training is designed to upskill staff in schools (to deliver a range of interventions for children with sensory processing difficulties (including sensory circuits). It is generally well accepted that more than 80-90% of children with autism have related sensory processing difficulties (SPD), yet waiting lists to families to see NHS Occupational Therapy can be more than 2 years in across the UK.
There is a huge demand for interventions with parents asking for support for their children displaying sensory distress, and this training course is not to replace the intervention or expertise of seeing highly specialised Occupational Therapists but to help staff in schools or settings with children that display signs of sensory distress to recognise this and to put appropriate interventions in place.
You receive a certificate from NW Autism and SEND and access to our making sense website which includes sensory resources and assessment tools.
This training is brand new and being piloted across a local authority and will be used in research as a potential evidence based intervention to be offered out across schools within the UK. Any University based researcher interested in this topic and would like to be involved in this project can contact email@example.com for more information.
