It's All on the Inside


This course focuses on the importance of our internal senses. Interoception is hugely important in our ability to self-regulate as well as recognise and respond to our emotions. We take you deeper into understanding this and what it can mean for the children and adults you care for with SPD.

What you will learn:

  • What is interoception?

  • The importance of our internal signals in daily life

  • The role of self-regulation and how you can support someone to develop these skills

  • The impact of interoceptive awareness and how this relates to body awareness, emotional awareness and regulation

  • Recognising interoceptive messages and how this can impact quality of life

  • How to identify characteristics specific to processing internal messages

  • Strategies to support someone with interoceptive processing difficulties at work or in the home

NEW - Inset for education 

- where to begin with supporting sensory needs

Have you had to re-schedule an inset day but still want your staff to have training?

Or maybe you want to save some money and arrange inhouse inset training yourself.

This online course can lead you through everything you need to know to support your students with Sensory Processing Disorder.

You'll learn about our 8 senses, why our senses are important for learning, how to understand and recognise someone's sensory characteristics, how to identify someone's over-riding sensory needs, strategies to support them as well as how to compile all this information into a sensory profile.

This can be worked though in 1 day or over a series of days. Our guidance notes gives you all then information you need to know in order to do this.
