The sensory processing guidance pages on Somerset's SEND Local Offer have been recently updated help you easily find information that will help you.

The information can be used to help you understand the nature of sensory processing differences and the impact they can have on children and young people's lives and learning.  It includes recommendations for creating appropriate environments and safe interventions for children and young people with sensory processing differences, but also where to go for more support.

You can find information and guidance, including videos and don't forget to use the feedback links at the bottom of the page to let us know any further improvements that could be made.

The Sensory Processing Handbook for schools has been co-produced to raise awareness and provide information to support children and young people who experience difficulties with sensory processing.  It can be helpful though for parent carers and all organisations supporting children and young people who have been identified as having sensory processing needs or differences.

We all know someone who finds clothing labels too itchy, hand dryers in public toilets too loud, or are always on the go spinning and bouncing off things. Use the handbook to understand the nature of sensory processing differences and the impact they can have on children and young people's lives and learning.  It includes recommendations for creating appropriate environments and safe interventions for children and young people with sensory processing differences.
