‘Sensory Processing – What’s the Fuss?’ is the flagship sensory processing disorder course at GriffinOT. The aim of this online sensory processing training is to explain why everyone must give a fuss about sensory processing disorder! We know that it’s often difficult to take time out or travel to courses, which is why we have taken our training online. The online sensory processing training course allows you to study at in your own time and at your own pace at home or work. We hope that this will offer flexibility for all parents and teachers to access the training. The GriffinOT website resources on sensory issues are designed to complement the training.
What Does The Online Sensory Processing Training Cover?
The online Sensory Processing Disorder training is designed not just to help you understand what Sensory Processing Disorder is, but how sensory processing challenges affect children day to day. The training teaches you why the senses are important for children’s learning and how they affect children’s behaviour and interactions.
