Autism & Sensory Challenges (in school)
What you'll learn
- What are the 5 main senses in autism
- What are extra senses involved in autism
- How the senses effect an autistic child in school
- What you can do to help an autistic child thrive at school
Autism often has sensory difficulties at its heart and nowhere are these more of a challenge than in the school environment. Missing these sensory needs can lead to very distressed behaviour and school refusal.
Hi, my name's Loren Snow, I've taught tens of thousands of parents of autistic children and have worked with many organisations such as Public Health England, and The National Autistic Society. As an autistic adult myself, I have many sensory differences, I’m also surrounded by other autistic adults, and I have worked for a decade supporting parents to understand their children’s sensory needs.
In this short course, we'll cover:
Our 5 main senses
Extra senses you might not even have heard of such as our senses of balance, body awareness, temperature, pain, and our internal sense
How each one might show itself at school, on the way to school, and in different school environments
The strategies that I’ve learned help autistic children from my work with schools and the I’ve 10,000s of parents I’ve taught
It can be really hard seeing your child struggle and be unable to cope. So I hope this course helps you.
Please join me today, on this course to learn more about autism’s sensory challenges in school.
Who this course is for:
- Parents of autistic children
- Teachers of autistic children
My name is Loren Snow, and I'm an autistic public speaker and trainer.
Over the past decade I've taught tens of thousands of parents of autistic children at every stage of the diagnosis process: from understanding EHCPs and other legal documents and reports, to understanding autism, learning how to connect with their children, to engaging with SALT, OTs, and all the other professionals.
I work with NHS England teaching NHS staff be they GPs, or work in hospitals, CAHMS units, PICU units, eating disorder units, and general health and social care staff. I also work in the NHS reviewing autistic patients' care in psychiatric hospitals to get them back into the community or to prevent hospital admittance.
I've also worked with many organisations from transporting bodies to public health, employers, schools, and charities and I regularly speak at public events like conferences, on podcasts, and on the radio.
I'm also surrounded by other autistic adults just like me - so what better place to learn about autism than directly from an autistic person like myself who knows the autistic point of view, has heard the parents side, and knows how the system works.
