The 5 Secrets for Calm Children

Sensory Processing Disorder affects 1 in 20 children, Magnetic Moves together with Autism QLD is helping to make sense of it all with a 1 day workshop in Toowoomba.

PRLog - May 9, 2014 - TOOWOOMBA, Australia -- Have you ever watched children playing?  In the crowded, noisy schoolyard you might see children that thrive on active play, others who prefer quiet social play. Then there are the children who appear out of sync with everyone else.  They are a bit too noisy, too boisterous and too physical.  These children are all processing information through their senses and this is reflected in their actions.

Sensory processing disorder can exist in isolation or in combination with other diagnoses. More and more children are being diagnosed on the autistic spectrum and an aspect of this diagnosis, for many children, is sensory processing difficulties.  This inability to accurately interpret information from their senses can be reflected in extremes of behaviour and may be seen as simply bad behaviour or a lack of discipline.

Robyn Sims, an Occupational Therapist and her business partner Jo Larcom of Magnetic Moves have been presenting Sensory Processing workshops, which include 5 secrets for calm kids, for over 4 years.  They saw a need for teachers and parents to gain a better understanding of sensory processing in relation to children’s behaviour.  Robyn’s professional knowledge and Jo’s practical experience as a mother of a child with sensory processing difficulties provides a unique perspective of what it means for a child at school and home to live with sensory processing challenges.

Magnetic Moves has linked with Autism QLD to provide a 1 day workshop in Toowoomba on 14th June 2014 for parents, teachers and health professionals.  At this workshop attendees will learn 5 strategies and activities which can be implemented at home or in the classroom to help calm and organise children.  Register online www.magneticmoves.com.au
