Sensory Attachment Intervention for neglected and abused children - London

Description:

Children who have been abused and neglected have often missed out on all sorts of movement experiences. For example, small children may have spent long hours strapped in a buggy or left without food and stimulation. While this might seem unimportant relative to other things they have experienced, it can leave children without a foundation to develop social and emotional skills. Children who have experienced abuse and neglect are often more ‘dysregulated’ than their peers.

This workshop, presented by Specialised Occupational Therapist Karen Hazard will provide an understanding of how to help children address some of their neurodevelopmental gaps. Karen Hazard will explain how the senses can impact on behaviour and give practical strategies that can that be used at home and school to help children tune into how they feel physically which in turn supports emotional health.

Children who have suffered abuse, severe neglect and/ or negative experiences in the womb and in early childhood can impact on one's capacity to cope with stress throughout life. This can leave the child in a constant state of hyper vigilance. This impacts on their ability to filter out "irrelevant" sensory experiences such as background sights and sounds. There is a tendency for the child to be sensory defensive. For example, they may register tactile (touch) input as uncomfortable or painful.

Sensory Attachment Intervention (SAI) is an integrative approach that recognises the need to target the source of dysfunction. Sensory regulating strategies can help the child dampen down the hyper vigilant state, and in turn this enables higher level sensory, emotional and cognitive functioning.

Who should attend

Adoptive parents and other permanent carers.
Social workers and other professionals working in permanency.
