Jacqui Olsson attended a workshop on Sensory Processing and its links with behaviour on Wednesday, 25th November 2009. This workshop examined the link between children’s behaviour, their ability to process sensory information and to understand their world and communicate, and provided loads of helpful strategies to assist children in play activities, staying calm and independently managing their own behaviour.
If you feel your child may have some sensory processing difficulties, you may consider the Sensory Profile to identify their sensory strengths and weaknesses. Please contact us if you would like more information on managing your child’s behaviour.
The Quirky Kid Clinic now offers the Sensory Profile to all parents who believe their child may be experiencing sensory processing difficulties.
The Sensory Profile is a measure of children’s responses to sensory events in daily life. The assessment requires the Parent to assess the frequency of their child’s responses to certain sensory processing, modulation, and behavioral/emotional events. The Sensory Profile can help identify your child’s sensory processing patterns; then we can consider how these patterns might be contributing to or creating barriers to performance in their daily life.
The Sensory Profile is particularly helpful when developing an early intervention program for children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
To find out more about the Sensory Profile, or to book an assessment please contact our reception on (02) 9362 9297.
