AUsome Training Autism and Sensory Processing Webinar
This webinar is a collaboration between Kilkenny Education Centre, Drumcondra Education Centre, Waterford Education Support Centre and Wexford Education Support Centre.
This webinar will give participants a deeper understanding of the differences in sensitivities that Autistic people experience. Participants 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.
- Understanding sensory differences,
- Developing sensory profiles, and
- Making your space more inclusive.
