‘All Inclusive?’ – Making Sense Of Our Senses
3rd December @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Supporting children and young people with special or additional needs or disabilities – accessibility, inclusion and belonging for all. An Urban Saints event. Includes a full-colour A4 workbook, access to video learning, and an interactive online group training session.
There are at least eight senses; five that we can all think of; sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch, as well as three that we might not know so much about; vestibular (balance and movement), proprioception (body awareness), and interoception (awareness of what’s happening inside the body).
This seminar explores all eight senses, and provides us with practical ways to learn about them with our own children, or with children we care for in a club or group, as well as thinking about what Jesus did when he met people with sensory impairments or how he and the disciples responded to their own senses.
We will also understand Sensory Processing Disorder, which is journeyed with by as many as one-in-ten children and young people and is often experienced alongside a range of other additional needs and disabilities.
The ‘All Inclusive?’ Making Sense Of Our Senses training programme includes:
- A comprehensive colour A4 training workbook with a wealth of information and resources sent to each participant in advance.
- Access to a series of videos to explore and learn through, covering a range of topics including an example of sensory overload, an overview of sensory processing disorder, putting together and using a ‘Fiddles Box’, how to create a sensory safe space, and more.
- Finally, a Zoom session including discussion groups, case studies, Q&A, and signposting to further resources to investigate, as we wrap this programme up together.
