Our Autism and Sensory Processing course is delivered by Stiof Macamhalghaidh, creator of The Munster Model of Autistic Living. You may have noticed that we did not include the word “disorder” after processing. Autistic people are more sensitive to our environment but should that automatically be described as a disorder?

In our Autism and Sensory Processing webinar we will explore Autistic senses. We will look at how we feel and experience the world. We will look at how a hostile environment can impact us negatively and suggest ways that we can adapt the environment to support Autistic children and adults to thrive. Our environment includes the physical world but it also includes our social world. When we explore how our world responds to us then we can see exactly what Autistic people have to process. Our environmental experiences impact our emotional well-being

You will learn more about the way Autistic kids and adults experience the world. You will also learn how our sensory experience is linked to our emotional state.  Stiof Macamhalghaidh explores the fascinating reasons why some Autistic infants don’t look towards their parents. They explain how we learn through our senses and how environmental forces impact our emotions and our abilities to process sensory-emotional information.

Topics include:

  • What is sensory processing?
  • “Appropriate Responses”
  • The impact of Lack of Acceptance
  • Trauma and the nervous system
  • Sensory v Emotional
  • Output v Input
  • The sensory-emotional jug
  • Autistic Sensitivity
  • What are senses?
  • Senses and Emotions
