Autism & Sensory Processing

Autism & Sensory Processing

Autism and Sensory Processing course is delivered by Evaleen Whelton from AUsome

In this Sensory Processing course we explore Autistic senses. We look at how we feel and experience the world. We look at how a hostile environment can impact us negatively and suggest ways that we can adapt the environment to support Autistic children to thrive.
Our environment includes the physical world but it also includes our social world. When we explore how our world responds to us then we can see exactly what Autistic people have to process. Our environmental experiences impact our emotional well-being.
In this course you will learn more about the way Autistic kids experience the world and the school environment. You will also learn how our sensory experience is linked to our emotional state.

Topics include:
● What is sensory processing?
● “Appropriate Responses”
● All rooms are sensory rooms!
● The sensory-emotional jug
● Senses and Emotions
● Practical strategies


Evaleen Whelton is founder of Ireland's Autistic-led training provider AUsome Training. She has worked with kids and teens for over 20 years. In her work as a speech and drama teacher, Evaleen has always been interested in building esteem and supporting kids to be themselves. 

Since making the discovery that she herself is Autistic in 2014, she has focused her passion and attention on supporting Autistic kids and young people to be the very best versions of themselves and to be themselves unapologetically. 

Her work centres the rights and dignity of Autistics and she has a deep understanding of the issues that face young Autistics in their social world and much of the work she does is to break down these social barriers for Autistics young and old.

Her work is driven by her vision of the world.  A world where everyone is valued and treated with respect and dignity.  A world where Autistic kids are not pathologised and our ways are better understood, accepted and celebrated.
