TOPIC: Sensory Make-and-Take
Presented by: Sandy Manns, Occupational Therapist
This hands-on presentation will provide participants with a basic understanding of the body’s different senses, including the five basic senses, as well as the less familiar vestibular and proprioceptive sensory systems. You will learn how to identify these senses in your child and determine if your child is under or oversensitive to each sense. In addition, you will be creating sensory-based activities to take home and use with your child! This presentation will be informative, fun, and interactive!

Partners Resource Night is a free training opportunity for parents, caregivers, professionals, and others. This event is designed to provide participants with the tools necessary to manage situations they encounter with children. This is an interactive and informative opportunity to learn more about autism spectrum disorder and its impact on children and their families.
Prior to the presentation, we host a social hour from 5:30pm- 6:30pm. Parents, family members, professionals, and Partners’ staff are encouraged to mingle and meet others who have a connection to autism. One of the great benefits to attending Partners Resource Night is sharing experiences among families and caregivers.
Partners Resource Night is an exciting, supportive, relative, and educational experience for all who attend. These evenings will be informal and enjoyable and we encourage everyone to participate. Childcare is not provided for these events. If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
