The day is aimed at all professionals in care (therapists, carers, social teams, health professionals, education professionals (special settings and mainstream, etc.) as well as parents, family members and carers.
As you can imagine, and are probably aware of in your professions, these difficulties can hugely impact someone's ability to concentrate, focus and understand the world around them as well as, most importantly, be difficult for them to understand their own bodies. This all relates tour Interoceptive sense which is referred to now as our 8th sensory system!
At our conference hear from leading researchers & practitioners teaching you more about this sensory system and how we can support our children and adults whom we care for better.
I look forward to welcoming you to this special workshop.
