Empowering sensitive children and their families

Most people think Sensory Overload is about the external world; you can’t bear crowds and overwhelming situations.

According to Wikipedia “Sensory overload occurs when one or more of the body’s senses experiences over-stimulation from the environment. There are many environmental elements that impact an individual. Examples of these elements are urbanization, crowding, noise, mass media, technology, and the explosive growth of information. Sensory overload is commonly associated with Sensory processing disorder. Like its opposite sensory deprivation, it has been used as a means of torture”

But sensory overload doesn’t just come from the external environment, it can also come from your internal world, with racing thoughts or not being able to block out background noise, such as the washing machine.

We can all experience sensory overload when we are very busy but many of our sensitive children get stuck in it, especially those on the Autistic spectrum. They struggle with family and education norms, with a sensory system permanently on high alert.

We have put together a set of 3 FREE short teleseminars to help families and teachers/schools understand more of the students’ inner subjective experience of these sensitivities, e.g. what is behind the behaviours.

You will learn simple new skills that will not only help the student but also you as their parents or teachers.
