Sensory Processing and Strategies

The Sensory Action Plan and Most Likely / Least Likely table available on this page were discussed in our Sensory Processing webinars.

You can complete them in conjunction with your viewing of the webinars.

Sensory Processing and Sensory Strategies webinars

In Part 1- Understanding Sensory Processing, we:

  • explored sensory processing
  • considered the differences diverse learners, including those on the autism spectrum, may experience with processing information from their senses
  • identified how sensory processing differences may impact on the daily lives of individuals and those around them.

In Part 2- Implementing Sensory Strategies, we discussed:

  • the importance of understanding sensory processing differences
  • how to review tools, strategies and resources that can assist individuals to meet their sensory needs and engage in their everyday activities.
