Event Details

Did you know there are actually 8 senses?  Join us to learn a little more about what each of these senses is.  We will discuss what over and under stimulation may look like in each of the areas and share ideas of activities that can be done to help regulate the senses to get them back ready to learn.  We will also share fun activities you can do with your child to engage the different senses and promote learning.

Learning objectives:

  1. Learn what the 8 senses are.
  2. Learn how an individual can be under responsive, over responsive or sensory seeking for each sense.
  3. Learn about activities that can address each of the senses.
