“Join us for an interactive workshop on how to utilise sensory play (Gascoyne, 2019, Stephens, 2020)  to achieve the LSL goals we have set for the families we see.  We will discuss current thinking on how this sense of touch, which is often neglected, is directly linked to cognition, language and emotional development (Faure & Richardson, 2014, Howie, 2016) and look at reasons why children with a hearing loss might benefit particularly. By using video examples we will demonstrate the stages of play development (Estabrooks et al 2016)and explore how we can use play functionally, using a framework. We will get sensory by using practical, low-cost material to share and generate novel ideas and recipes that we can use with children from 0-5 years old.

Training will be split into 2-hour long webinars, with an individual task to be carried out in between webinars. CEU’s from AGBell Academy will be applied for
