AUsome Training Autism and Sensory Processing Webinar

AUsome Training Autism and Sensory Processing Webinar


This webinar is a collaboration between Kilkenny Education Centre, Drumcondra Education Centre, Waterford Teachers' Centre and Wexford Education Support Centre.

This webinar will give participants a deeper understanding of the differences in sensitivities that Autistic people experience. We will also work through some common terms associated with “sensory”, like “sensory overload” , “sensory-emotional”, “sensory seeking” and “sensory avoiding”, and give you a really clear insight into what these terms mean and how you can accommodate varying sensory needs in your classroom.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding sensory differences,
  • Developing sensory profiles, and
  • Making your space more inclusive.
