Making Sense of Sensory Issues – How to manage heightened senses at home and in the classroom

Presenter: Michelle Miller, Psy.D.

Over the years, parents and teachers have been increasingly attending to childrens' sensory related struggles, however, understanding and supporting sensory problems still remains unclear for so many people who work with children. Research has also suggested that one in six children are significantly impacted by sensory issues, further highlighting the need for this area to be addressed. This webinar is aimed at exploring what sensory issues are, how they look in different children and adults, and what can be done, both at home and at school, to help children with sensory issues thrive.
