POPARD Virtual BC-Wide Mini-Workshop
Friday February 18, 2022 1:00pm-4:00pm

(for BC School Employees Only)

ASD & Sensory Differences

Sensory differences are not a core feature of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), yet most people with autism report sensory processing difficulties. Understanding how ASD impacts sensory systems can help you support autistic children. Participants will review the basics of the sensory system and sensory processing.  They will learn to recognize the effects of over-sensitivity and under-sensitivity in different areas (e.g. sights, sounds) and will learn appropriate strategies to help kids cope at school. This half-day (three hour) workshop is intended as an introduction to the topic for school staff (e.g. educational assistants, student support workers, and teachers) working directly with autistic students. 

Audience: This workshop is for employees of BC School Districts and Independent Schools.
