Helping children with sensory induced anxiety

Sensory Anxiety

Video training for parents who want to understand and better support their child suffering from sensory induced anxiety.

Anxiety in children is caused by many different triggers.  In this workshop, Deb will discuss how sensory overload can lead to anxiety and how you can help your child to recognise the signs and manage the symptoms.

Sensory anxiety occurs when the sensory information in the environment is too much and it is beyond a child’s nervous system’s ability to cope. Our nervous system can create sensory memories which can act as triggers for anxiety in similar situations.
