Join us for an Interactive Family Workshop with Olivia Hoffsuemmer (Occupational Therapist)
This workshop will explore Sensory Processing.
Bring your child with you to play & learn together in an interactive session which will give you some ideas on how your child may benefit from exploring their senses & how to continue to develop these ideas together at home.
Children use their senses during all their first experiences to help them make sense of the world. Olivia will support you to understand how your senses help you do this. You will learn about the benefits of multisensory play; such as using sensory bins. You will discover how these can stimulate our senses, promote emotional regulation, and develop fine motor skills. Olivia will then show you how to create your own personalised sensory bin with your little ones, so that you can incorporate all you have learnt to see, touch, smell, and hear the benefits of sensory play for yourself.
This workshop is ideally suited to a parent & child aged 3-6.
To get the most from this workshop, we recommend that parents & children actively work & play together.
