Sensory Integration Training

Sensory Integration Training

SenSI Workshop LogoWe are running a parent and carer workshop on Thursday 26th March 2015. We recognise how complex sensory integration, sensory processing and sensory attachment is, and want to give an opportunity for parents and carers to ask us questions and explore these areas further.

This workshop will be practical yet theoretical, exploring some of the science behind the play. We will explain some of the activities we use within sessions, to help make sense of what we do.

We believe “see motor…think sensory” and we will explore this with you all.

There will be a chance to meet the extended team, including the OT Assistants, new Therapists Moira and Heidi, and Holistic Therapist Fran.

There will be opportunity for you to see our new products, and borrow some equipment and books from our ‘library’.

Please contact us should you wish to attend this workshop evening.

Specialist Advisors to ROMPA

Specialist Advisors to ROMPA

SenSI are very excited to announce that we are working closely with Rompa, and acting as their Specialist Advisors in Autism and Sensory Integration. We feature in their new brochure 2015!

We have been meeting with Rompa over the past year, helping them design new products, and new packages of equipment, such as the Oral Motor Package.

SenSI have also been product testing, and have had some brilliant volunteers who have put the equipment to the test, and allowed us to take videos and photos on the equipment – thank you to all involved! You will see these throughout the year on Rompa website, Twitter and Facebook.

Should you have any questions as to any Rompa products, please ask away. Also, should you have any comments as to any of Rompa Sensory Integration equipment, please let us know.

Virtual School for Children in Care logoSenSI are presenting throughout the day at Education Matters Conference on Tuesday 17th March 2015 from 9:30am to 4:00pm at the John Innes Centre in Norwich.

This event is designed to improve the educational outcomes for looked after children and explore ways of working with these children.

Our presentation will focus on the theme of the conference which is ‘Exceptional Children: Exceptional Needs

Our presentation is specifically exploring Sensory Processing Disorders and Sensory Attachment Intervention (SAI). Our workshop will be a combination of presentation and practical discussion. We aim to provide more indepth understanding of Sensory Processing Difficulties and how this can affect the Attachment styles of these child. We will provide information and advice on these two areas of difficulties which are often intertwined with children who have had a difficult start in life.

We will be linking theory to practice, and using case studies to help illustrate the work we do, and strategies that can be used by parents, carers and other professionals.
