PDA and Sensory Processing


In this webinar, Occupational Therapist Alison Hart of Children's Choice Therapy Service explains how Sensory Processing is often the 'missing link' to understanding why environments and every day activities can be so challenging for some individuals.

Poor sensory processing is our ability to understand the environment around us, as well as how our body works and responds within that environment.  Existing conditions, anxieties, processing, and developmental disorders all impact this foundation skill, and hence every day, individual and family life.

This webinar will help us to understand sensory processing, how it relates to PDA and how it can be a trigger for behaviours as well as presenting helpful strategies.

An extended question and answer session follows.
