Many children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) process sensory information (i.e., information coming in through your vision, hearing, smelling, tasting and touching senses) from the world around them differently than others. In this workshop led by Kinark’s Occupational Therapist, you will explore the sensory system, how it affects individuals with ASD and how to support your child from day to day. This session aims to provide caregivers with a general overview of sensory processing and emotion regulation strategies. You will also learn about the functions of behaviour, triggers of dysregulation and tools/strategies to support sensory regulation that you can implement at home.
