Newborn babyThis three-day course will focus on the role of sensory processing in early childhood development, behaviours associated with changed sensory processing and the use of sensory strategies to promote development.

The course will offer practical strategies to working with babies and their families in the neonatal unit and during the first two years of life.

  • Participants will develop an understanding of:SI BABIES 1
  • Sensory development – sequential development from con-ception to 2 years (1001 critical days)
  • Behavioural cues and the language of the newborn
  • co-regulation leading to self-regulation and the impact on development
  • The theory of attachment and attunement and how this af-fects development
  • To explore baby occupations through the senses: eat, sleep and play
  • To discuss causes for atypical development both environ-mental and neurological from a sensory perspective.

Video, demonstration and case examples will be used throughout the course.
