This seminar will set the foundation blocks for further, deeper understanding to come.

It is hoped that the participants will gain a further understanding of the Sensory Differences involved with Neurodiversity.

5)  Safe Social Story Creation. The participants will be brought through the stages of writing Social Narratives for children that are Safe, Explicit, Accurate and Meaningful(SEAM) focussing on information that informs children of what they are expected to do rather than not do.
