We understand our world through our senses. Our ability to regulate our bodies and minds allows us to learn. We learn and grow best when in nurturing relationships. The interactions of these 3 foundational domains – sensory processing, regulation, and relationship – impacts every aspect of our development throughout the lifespan. This course introduces these domains and their neuro-biological, behavioral, and functional intersections with one another that can support or derail function. Designed for, and open to all who are curious about sensory processing, this course supports participant integration of the information through guided discussions and open format questioning.
