For some children, sensory processing does not occur as it should. Sensory Processing Difficulties affect people in different ways.  Some senses over respond to sensory stimuli, some may under respond and some may fluctuate in response. For example, a child may over respond to a label in their clothing or seams on their socks (touch sense), whilst constantly seeking movement due to being under responsive in their balance (vestibular) sense.


This course is suitable for parents, residential staff, SENCos, class teachers and staff supporting children with sensory processing problems in schools. It is also suitable for health care professionals working with children with sensory processing disorder (e.g. physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and psychologists).

Benefits of Attending:

  • Understand the terms ‘sensory integration’ and ‘sensory processing disorder’
  • Understand the main 8 sensory systems
  • Recognise behaviour through a ‘sensory lens’
  • Understand how sensory processing disorder can impact on regulation, engagement, learning and behaviour
  • Develop a practical understanding and strategies to assist the child at home, in school and across other settings

Delivered By: The Children’s Sensory Therapy Ltd team, and Zoe Webb (Clinical Psychologist)

Course will be held at:
Midlands Child and Family Therapy Centre, 20 Main Street, Aslockton, Nottingham, NG13 9AL

Children who have experienced developmental trauma in utero and in early childhood can have on-going difficulties both in the short and long-term. These difficulties appear across all aspects of functioning, including sensory, emotional and behavioural regulation, relationships, cognition and self-concept. Their brains are wired up in such a way as to leave them in a constant state of hypervigilance and fear which impacts on their ability to filter out information that shouldn’t be important and concentrate on what is important. This, in turn, impacts on their engagement with the world around them. Sensory Processing, combined with Attachment Theory, recognizes the need to target the areas of the brain that are the source of the dysfunction and works on re-wiring the brains of children with developmental trauma.  This can be done through understanding the child’s sensory needs and developing sensory regulating strategies that can help the child dampen down over-responsive senses and activate under-responsive ones. This in turn enables higher level sensory, emotional and cognitive functioning and allows for attachment/trauma-focused therapies to then work on offering effective emotional co-regulation, deepening connections, and co-creating meaningful narratives for young people in order to make better sense of themselves.

Benefits of Attending:

  • Develop an understanding of Developmental Trauma and the impact of this on the brain and areas of functioning.
  • Gain an understanding of the senses and sensory processing and how these can impact on a child’s behaviour.
  • Develop an understanding of attachment patterns and how these play out in ongoing relationships.
  • Learn about ways of intervening and supporting young people with Developmental Trauma.

What our clients say

“The Sensory Integration Disorder training delivered by Karen was extremely informative and contained practical tips for how to support pupils in school. The session would be of benefit for staff working with children who may have experienced past trauma as well as children with ASD traits – it provides a fascinating insight into how the disorder may have affected a child’s development and what we can do in schools to remedy that. For any professional interested in child development or who may be struggling with what to do next to support a child, I would highly recommend the training”
