The Symposium is great for any individuals–occupational or physical therapists, special education teachers, early intervention specialists, parents and more–seeking a better understanding of Sensory Processing Disorder. And in addition to the two-day Symposium, the STAR Institute is hosting a pre-symposium workshop for parents focused on relationships and SPD across the lifespan.

Did you know that October is Sensory Awareness Month? It is, and on this last day of the month, we wanted to share the benefits that children of all abilities get from sensory play. Sensory play involves activities that help to stimulate and develop behaviors based on what a child sees, hears, touches, tastes and smells. It also involves how they move and position their bodies in space. The more they engage all seven senses, the better they make sense of the world around them and their relationship to it.
