This seminar will detail the sensory impairments that can affect up to 90% of autistic children. It will help participants to identify behaviours in the classroom that may be a result of sensory processing problems.
Once we understand how sensory processing issues can affect a child's behaviour and ability to learn, lots of examples of activities to help to regulate sensory systems will be given with practical ways to adapt them into your daily schedules and classroom.
This webinar will be delivered by SEN teacher Libby Conroy and Dr, David Jordan. Libby Conroy is the founder of South Education Services (South Ed. Services) and has been delivering courses to teachers, parents, snas and professionals working in the area of Autism and SEN since 2015.

She holds a Masters of Education specialising in Autism, A Post-Graduate diploma in SEN and various other certificates relating to SEN.
