Sensory – Living with Sensory Difficulties
Everybody experiences the world around them in different ways.
Our senses provide us with the information we need to carry out day-to-day tasks and activities. This sensory information gives us an understanding of who we are, where we are and what is going on around us.
Sometimes how your brain understands information from your senses can make it difficult to join in with everyday activities at home or in the community.
These resources will help you understand sensory processing difficulties and how you can support your child or young person.
You can choose the resources that are right for you and your child:
