‘The Getting Kids in Sync’ Workshop
A sensory processing approach to challenges associated with Autism, ADHD, Learning and Behavioural Disorders

This presentation is designed for therapists, teachers, parents, caregivers and other professionals who are interested in understanding the fundamentals of sensory processing and its impact on attention, behaviour, social engagement, creative thinking, purpose driven play and learning. Genevieve offers practical and powerful tools to help support children “learn and thrive from the inside out”. Participants will be able to add beneficial experiences to the sensory diets of the children they care for. Respiration and it effects on behaviour, learning and attention will be presented along with practical tools to support the breath at home, in the classroom or in the social environment. Participants will be exposed to a multitude of activities involving rhythm and movement to implement immediately when leaving the workshop with the children they care for. A relationship based approach to interacting with your children to support problem solving, motor planning, creative thinking, building bridges between ideas and social connectiveness will also be presented in specific detail. The speaker will address how sensory processing difficulties affect many children, both with and without the diagnoses of autism spectrum disorders, aspergers syndrome, adhd, add, learning challenges and other developmental and neurological challenges. The speaker will describe how, both recognised and undetected, sensory processing difficulties in children can significantly impact social and emotional relationships, behaviour, attention and learning in the classroom, home and clinic.
