About the Event
Serene Cheong of the Child Development Centre will guide parents and caregivers on the topic of sensory integration and how some children find it difficult to process sensory information (e.g. sound, touch and movement) from the world around them.
This means they may feel sensory input more or less intensely than other children, affecting their ability to interact in different environments.
Join us and learn:
- What is sensory integration?
- Sensory processing issues signs and symptoms
- Types of sensory avoidance and sensory seeking
- How you can help your child
- Explore activities for each sensory system
Sensory processing issues can affect children of all ages, so come along to this free online event to learn more in order to support your child.
