This session examines our senses and how children and young people on the autism spectrum may experience their sensory world differently. We explore the different sensory pathways that can be affected by having autism.
How sensory processing issues can impact at school and beyond.
We examine first-hand how this can feel through practical activities.
We explore some ways to support pupils with autism experiencing sensory difficulties within school.
