from The Sensory Projects

Early Bird Booking for the 2018 Lexiconary Tour is now live! Book via EventBrite at the links below.


The event starts at 0930h on each day.















Event Description

Develop your sensory lexiconary and learn to use it to communicate with those who experience meaning in a primarily sensory way. 
This course will teach you about the development of seven sensory systems and show you how to select and organise sensory resources in such a way as to engage Sensory Beings in conversations, whilst also supporting their mental well being and developing their cognition. 

Everyone is welcome on these days but they are particularly suitable for:

  • People who support individuals with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
  • People who are looking to use sensory communication with individuals in the later stages of dementia.
  • People who work with babies and children in the early years looking to develop their sensory practice.
  • Creative individuals looking to develop sensory works to engage with sensory communicators.
  • People who work in special schools or run groups that support students from special schools.
  • People with a particular interest in sensory literacy.
