Autism Essentials Workshop Series

Autism can be described as "a challenge in making ‘sense’ of the world". Children with autism therefore have great challenges and differences in the way they process sensory information.


A child's individual sensory processing abilities will directly influence what they participate in, what they avoid, their attention and focus, plus their desire to interact with others... all of which have a huge impact on social and communication development!

To Therapists, Parents, Teachers and Carers of a child with Autism...

A child's individual sensory processing abilities will directly influence what they participate in, what they avoid, their attention and focus, plus their desire to interact with others... all of which have a huge impact on social and communication development!

Because of this... understanding Sensory Processing is critical when treating children with ASD.

In this 2 hour online workshop you will gain a very important understanding of the unique sensory profile of your client or child. You will also discover how this impacts many areas of learning, especially social and communication development, and why it is crucial to incorporate this knowledge into therapy and daily living to achieve the best outcomes.

The workshop also includes lots of video footage of Monique interacting with her clients, demonstrating her extensive knowledge and practical application of the skills she has developed over the past 17 years.

The entire presentation has been specially created to make it easy to understand and more importantly as easy as possible to practically apply the information so that you can start making positive changes immediately.

What you will learn?

  1. Discover what we know about Sensory Processing in children with ASD and how this is very different to typical children.
  2. Gain an in depth understanding of the unique sensory processing differences of your particular child or client and how this is impacting on their development.
  3. Discover how your child or client's sensory processing directly impacts their socialisation and communication abilities.
  4. The significant role that sensory processing plays in how calm they are for learning.
  5. Watch lots of video footage of Monique at work, demonstrating how having a good knowledge of her client's sensory processing is critical to the development of the child's social and communication skills.
