Lecture on Sensory Processing as a Therapeutic Tool for Children with Special Needs, Victims of Abuse and Neglect

Goal: Processing disorders are typical of child victims of violence, and so much more so for children with special needs, who frequently also need to cope with difficulties in sensory processing. Along with the awareness of difficulties that may result from sensory deficiencies and the manner in which these children experience the world, the sensory channel can also serve as a processing channel and therefore constitutes an important tool in the therapeutic process. The lectures provide a basis for developing sensory systems alongside guiding principles that can be utilized in the sensory channel as a processing factor in therapy.

Target Population:  The therapists at the SHEKEL Treatment Center

Number of Sessions: 2

Participants: 12

Location: The Haruv Campus for Children
