The BUSS model - Building Underdeveloped Sensory Systems - Leeds

Description:

Babies and young children raised in loving, nurturing environments grow into themselves on a bodily level through the touch and movement that happens in the context of early relationships. This enables children to feel confident in their movements and their body, as well as in the messages their body gives them about their physiological state. Significantly, this then provides a solid foundation for the development of social-emotional skills and cognitive learning.

Many children who have experienced developmental trauma will have missed out on the above. The BUSS model is designed to support these children: the model helps to fill in the gaps in a child’s bodily foundation which includes catching up on sensorimotor stages, sensory processing and bodily regulation.

Please come dressed ready to be move around!

Who should attend

Adoptive parents, foster carers and professionals working with children and families.

Trainer

Sarah Lloyd is a Specialist Occupational Therapist and Play Therapist who has worked in CAMHS for over 25 years and is based in West Yorkshire. She published a book in 2016, ‘Improving Sensory Processing in Traumatised Children’, which explores the subject of this training day in depth. Her second book, ‘The Building Underdeveloped Sensory Systems (BUSS) Model: A Developmentally Smart Start in Fostering and Adoption’, is due to be published in April 2020.

Benefits of attending

  1. Understanding the BUSS model: bringing together sensory integration theory, attachment theory, brain development.
  2. Learning practical strategies to build your child child’s underdeveloped sensorimotor-, sensory processing and regulation systems.
  3. Meeting other parents and professionals to exchange experiences.
