About this course - Sensory Processing
Understanding how we make sense of the world around us and process this sensory information for meaning. The course will also look at exploring sensory difference for autistic individuals, and what practitioners should consider when looking at the environment.
This course has been developed to further our understanding of autism as a developmental difference. This course will deepen our understanding of typical and atypical development, and start to explore what we mean by a spiky developmental profile in autism. We will also look at ‘self’ and how our understanding of an individual’s developmental profile informs our practice.
This course is accredited by the CPD Certification Service.

To explore what we mean by human development
