The Sensory Dining room
The Sensory Dining room is an immersive training experience which will offer you an opportunity to experience how a Sensory Processing Disorder might impact your mealtimes.
This training focuses on some difficulties with food as well as the environment as explained by the people with SPD whom we work closely with.
This initial training was created based on research gathered while collaborating with Queensmill school, London.
