Target AudienceParents & Caregivers
Full fee: S$120 per participant
CTG Co-Payment: S$10 per caregiver
(inclusive of GST, handout materials and refreshments)
Individuals with autism may have difficulty processing everyday sensory information. At one end of the sensory spectrum, they may have difficulty registering the information or they may experience a sensory overload. Too much information can cause stress, anxiety, and possibly physical pain. This can result in withdrawal, challenging behaviour or meltdowns. These sensory differences can be a barrier to learning and can affect a person’s quality of life.
The aim of this workshop is to provide participants with an understanding of the different sensory issues and difficulties faced by individuals with autism. Parents/caregivers will be guided on how to establish their child’s sensory profile and learn ways to accommodate and support their child’s sensory needs.
Important: This workshop is not meant to replace the need for proper assessment and intervention programming for sensory issues.
This training programme is designed to empower participants with the knowledge and skills so that they can:
- have an understanding of the 7 sensory processes in individuals
- identify sensory difficulties in individuals with autism
- be aware of the impact of these difficulties on daily activities
- provide support for their child with autism through accommodation strategies
- have an understanding and support self-regulation of the children
Parents and Caregivers caring for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (pre-school or in Special Education Schools)
