Come and join us in a parent education workshop like you’ve never attended before. We will take a light-hearted approach to learning about sensory processing. In this workshop we will explore the question “Why do kids do the goofy the things they do?” You will be introduced to some of the major concepts of sensory processing and the ways in which sensory processing challenges influence development, learning and most importantly, relationships. Ideas and strategies that can be used by parents to address their child’s sensory processing challenges will be provided. Parents will be encouraged to explore and reflect on their own unique sensory quirks as they attempt to understand the sensory processing challenges that their children may be experiencing. Questions and discussion will be encouraged and welcomed.


** This event is being presented thanks to a generous grant from the TJ Maxx Foundation. No CEs will be provided for attending. **
