With one in five children experiencing Sensory Processing difficulties within the classroom, it is becoming more important for us to identify ways to support children manage their sensory sensitivities and processing difficulties in order for them to achieve their full academic and learning potential.
We offer a sensory processing screening assessment to help identify which sensory systems are affecting the child learn and develop. If a child is sensitive to noise during assembly or lunch, their behaviour in the classroom may be affected.
If a child struggles to block out background noise they may be unable to focus on the instruction or direction of the teacher.
Children with tactile sensitivity can struggle to line up with others, can become over whelmed in the playground and are often unable to organise themselves to transition from one situation to another.
A sensory processing screen will help identify which sensory systems are affected and how we can help introduce calming strategies to support children in managing their difficulties.
