FORT WAYNE, Ind. - March 9, 2018 - PRLog -- An empowering event designed for adults (parents, caregivers, therapists, educators, and other professionals) who live, work and/or interact with Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD), or anyone with perceptual disorders (optical acoustic, olfactory, tactile).

Three days of workshop sessions will speak to families, therapeutic professionals, and educators, inviting their growth in awareness and competence in learning about Snoezelen™ processes, and how to facilitate these processes using interpersonal skills within multi-sensory environments.

DAY 1 - is designated for parents and caregivers interested in discovering a new way of communicating and engaging with their loved ones. You will receive the foundation of Snoezelen® -MSE, be introduced to the basic design concept and application of sensory items, and learn methods for engaged processes for enriching relationships.

DAY 2 - is designated for therapists and other professionals who would like in depth knowledge about MSEs and how to initiate the processes that incorporate these methods into their practice. We will go through different disciplines as well as diagnoses; autism, dementia, Alzheimer's, sensory processing disorders, physical disabilities and others.

DAY 3 - is designated for educators. We will focus on how MSE's and other sensory interventions can help to prevent sensory overload and its effects, and how to support and interact with different types of sensory issues. We will illustrate different scenarios and suggest various methods that can be used for creating a sense of balance that inspires continued learning.
