Price: £114.00

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.
