Today's spotlight is on Alison Hart.
|Alison Hart Occupational Therapist|
Alison is the founder and company director of Children’s Choice Therapy Service Ltd – a group of specialist Occupational Therapists working within special and mainstream schools, with healthcare, charities, individuals and within the specialist OT and Sensory Integration centre on the Staffordshire / Derbyshire border. Alison Hart is also a Senior Lecturer at the University of Derby.
See below for the abstract for her talk;
‘Understanding Sensory Processing in the classroom’ is an introduction to help us understand what the senses are, how they need to work together, and the kinds of difficulties our children and young people face. The session is interactive and will start to give ideas of how we can overcome these difficulties to enable learning, impact behaviours and improve engagement in everyday activities.
