At Manchester Occupational Therapy Services we offer training for both school staff and parents/carers, as well as having a number of online training resources available.
We run regular parent and school staff workshops based around Sensory processing needs and basic strategies to address these. These workshops are run by our qualified Occupational Therapists and are a great way to increase your awareness of Sensory processing difficulties as well as gaining an understanding of some strategies that you can try at school or home to support an individual who may have difficulties in this area.
We can also offer bespoke training packages for schools or other organisations, this means we will design our training based around your schools/organisations needs. This may be for parents or staff.
