‘New Sensations’ is a one day workshop followed by a one hour individual therapy session. The workshop will introduce clients to Sensory Modulation and the individual session will tailor these strategies to each individual clients’ needs. Recommendations from the program will be shared with Support Facilitators and carers to assist clients to implement and maintain sensory strategies in their daily lives.
Sensory Modulation can be described simply as improving the way you feel or function by using your senses. Sensory Modulation can help people to self-regulate when facing challenging moods, emotions, thoughts and feelings, especially when talking or thinking may be difficult. It can also support people to perform important day to day activities or tasks. Sensory items will be provided to explore in the group and some small items will be provided to take home.
