Discover the differences between behaviour and Sensory Integration

Whether you're caring for a child at home or in an educational setting, level one gives you the knowledge you need to help the child. Excel Child Therapy's Sensory Awareness Training Courses were CPD certified in 2021, by the CPD Standards Office.

Learning outcomes

SAT1 is aimed at individuals working with children or adolescents in mainstream or special schools, who present with sensory issues. Equally essential for parents, carers and grandparents. By the end of this course, you will have a greater understanding of:

  • Child developmental patterns.

  • What Sensory Integration is and isn’t.

  • How poor sensory integration can be recognised.

  • Recognise the difference between sensory and typical behaviours.

  • Have an introduction to the main 5 sensory systems

  • Know the Signs and Symptoms.

Why are the 5 sensory systems so important?

We are all sensory beings and every input we receive is sensory based. There are more than 5 sensory systems but we will only cover these most common systems during your course. The big 5 are: Vestibular (movement), Proprioception (deep muscles/joints), Touch, Vision and Hearing
