Sensory Play Training

This course is aimed at learners who are working with children and young people.

The aim of the course is to develop knowledge of the senses and the way sensory information can be processed. To understand the importance of sensory play in learning and development, learners will be taking part in practical activities, which will explore potential barriers and ways of overcoming these.
