Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Neuro Diversity is becoming better understood. However, many people who live with the condition struggle with sensory processing. In particular Visual processing. This can make everyday life difficult. There are many reasons, such as poor environmental design, irregular support and overstimulating environments.
We know because research tell us that a large part of ASD characteristics are related to sensory processing disorders. This is making people hypersensitive to some sensory inputs and hypo sensitive to others.
This course will look at hypersensitive visual and hyposensitive visual processing disorders, because vision is often area where many people struggle to use it in the same way as we would expect. Therefore, it is important to know how to support and develop best practice around communication, positive behaviour support and environmental change.
