This three-day course focuses on the role of sensory processing in early childhood development, behaviours associated with changed sensory processing and the use of sensory strategies to promote development.
The course is suitable for occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, paediatricians, nurses and early educator providers.
The course offers practical strategies to working with babies and their families in the neonatal unit and during the first two years of life. Participants develop an understanding of:
Sensory development – sequential development from conception to 2 years (1001 critical days)
Behavioural cues and the language of the newborn
co-regulation leading to self-regulation and the impact on development
The theory of attachment and attunement and how this affects development
To explore baby occupations through the senses: eat, sleep and play
To discuss causes for atypical development both environmental and neurological from a sensory perspective.
