Making Sense of Your Senses

Many of the symptoms associated with ADHD/ADD, ODD, RAD, PTSD, etc. can be attributed to sensory processing difficulties. Sensory Processing is how we view and experience the world and take in information through our internal and external senses. Adverse experiences in early childhood can make taking in information through our bodies much more difficult. This workshop will allow the attendee an opportunity to learn the basic tenants of sensory processing and experience through hands-on activities and learn new ways to help your child meet their sensory needs in the home and school settings.
