Our free sensory course explores the basics of sensory processing disorder and sensory integration.  It is designed for teachers, parents and professionals who want an introduction to sensory processing disorder.  At the end we hope that you will understand the different types of sensory issues.  We briefly explore different models of sensory processing disorder and sensory integration.  You’ll also learn all about the eight senses, rather than the five you might have been told about at school.
