The impact of developmental trauma on sensory processing via Zoom on 19 October and 2 November 2020

Price: £218.40

Date: October 19, 2020

Children who have experienced developmental trauma can have altered sensory processing.

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.

Availability: Spaces remaining.
