This workshop is led by a Specialist Occupational Therapist in the Social Communication Pathway and will provide the opportunity to:

  • Develop your understanding of sensory systems, e.g., touch, smell, taste, movement and introduce less familiar systems such as proprioception and interception.
  • Consider how autistic individuals may experience sensory differences.
  • Think about how sensory differences can affect everyday activities.
  • Explore strategies that may be considered when supporting an autistic individual.
  • Hear about the experiences of other families and share your own experiences if you wish.

Biscuits, tea and coffee will be provided. However, lunch isn’t provided so please make sure to bring your own food for the lunch break.

If you need an interpreter to access the session, please email with at least a week’s notice before the session. Each session can only cater for one interpreter so please contact the SCP team ASAP if you require one.
