Sensory & Motor Training Courses

 

Tree Tops have designed a range of specialised training courses to help children with their sensory and motor difficulties.

We welcome both teachers and parents to attend our courses which are delivered on a regular basis.

Please see our range of courses below and contact us if you would like to discuss them in more detail.

HANDWRITING SKILLS

Do you have children in your classroom with handwriting difficulties? Our fun, interactive full day training will equip you to understand and develop handwriting, improve the child’s pencil grip, letter formation and visual perception and much more. 

FEEDING SKILLS

Our course will help you understand and experience why a child can struggle with feeding. Developing insight into the motor, sensory and psychological factors involved in this complex process will equip individuals to effectively help children who are ‘picky’ or ‘problem’ feeders.

THINK SENSORYNOT BEHAVIOUR

Do you work with children displaying challenging behaviours, frequent outbursts, and are unpredictable or struggle to sit still? Our training will help you understand Sensory Processing and how difficulties can affect a child’s function, motivation and attention. 

MOTOR SKILLS

Many children display difficulties with poor planning, organisation, co-ordination and attention skills. These issues can hinder their academic performance and ability to learn. Our interactive training day workshop incorporates structured and practical sessions to help train teachers.

LISTENINGPROGRAMME

Listening plays an important daily role with not just the ears but the whole body in the process of sensory integration. Research and clinical experiences over the years have shown that using sound-based interventions for those with sensory processing difficulties (SPD) can increase the success of treatment.

Teacher Training - Client Testimonials

The course has made me more aware of how the sensory development affects a child and it is not just behaviour.'
