Sensory Play and ExplorationAre your child’s sensory needs driving you and him/her crazy?! Come join us for a night of information filled fun.
Presented by: Lauren Hutchins, MS, OTR/L
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 have a chance to explore your own sensory preferences and how these might impact your day to day activities. 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 exploring and creating a number of sensory-based ideas and activities to take home and use with your child! This presentation will be informative, fun, and interactive! We will be making some homemade moon sand, learning to make monster bubbles, and exploring other sensory based play ideas. Get ready to create!
