Session 1 of 3: Exploring the Senses: An introduction to the sensory system
This webinar will provide an overview of the sensory system, including how we take in, process and respond to sensory information in the environment. It will address: What are the senses? What is “sensory processing”? What is “sensory integration”? In addition, we will briefly discuss what happens when there are difficulties with this process: hyper (over) responsivity and hypo (under) responsivity.
