Kim’s sensory series aims to demystify the world of sensory supports. Over six sessions, Kim will explore the world of sensory processing. She will explain the history of sensory integration theory and sensory processing. She will help you to understand the differences between direct sensory integration and sensory supports. The series will explore current evidence for sensory supports and how you can assess children’s needs and embed practical supports to help.
