Course description: Covering eight senses Dr Luke Beardon explores the fascinating and illuminating sensory world through an autism lens; accepting that all autistic individuals will have sensory profiles that differ from the Predominant Neurotype (often quite dramatically). He argues that without a good understanding of sensory profiles and subsequent adaptations to the environment, society is frequently acting unlawfully and letting the autism community down - sometimes to devastating effect.
Target audience: Anyone working with children and families in Essex.
Cost to participants: Free (However, if a delegate fails to attend a course that they have booked, or cancel with less than five working days’ notice, their organisation will be charged).
This course is run in partnership with Essex Social Care Academy.
