The Contented Child brings you sensory processing difficulties. A workshop, for professionals and parents who have a child with sensory processing difficulties (SPD). The workshop looks at how sensory processing difficulties may present in the child. Looking at the child who seeks out sensory feedback, to the child who actively avoids touch (hypersensitivity) and the child who is under responsive (hyposensitivity).
Our workshop, aims to
