NAS Merton is run by volunteers. We rely on funding, however if you feel unable to attend due to financial issues please do contact us as we do offer some bursary places for workshops.

 

We are delighted to launch our first Sensory Processing Workshop.

Sheena Rufus, Team leader of the Merton Children and Young People's Occupational Therapy Team, will help you understand the overload of stimulus caused by sensory processing difficulties. She will demonstrate strategies, using basic equipment you can find in high street shops, that will help to regulate stress and reduce anxiety.

You will then have the opportunity to borrow equipment from our Sensory Library to try at home. A cash deposit will be required, varying depending on which piece of equipment you choose. Equipment on loan must be returned within 1 month.

 

The workshop will be interesting for everyone affected by autism, adults and parents / carers of children. However the equipment is designed mainly with children in mind. This event is not suitable for children to attend.
