Exploring eight of our senses and sensory additional needs and disabilities including Sensory Processing Disorder / Differences.

Making Sense of our Senses - booklet coverThere are at least eight senses; five that we can all think of; sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch, as well as three that we might not know so much about; vestibular (balance and movement), proprioception (body awareness), and interoception (awareness of what’s happening inside the body). 

This seminar explores all eight senses, and provides us with practical ways to learn about them with our own children, or with children we care for in a club or group, as well as thinking about what Jesus did when he met people with sensory impairments or how he and the disciples responded to their own senses.


"It’s an amazing opportunity to gather information and informed advice and tips. Answered my questions and uncertainties and made me feel equipped and excited about how I can work alongside all young people."
All Inclusive? event in Haywards Heath, October 2019

These interactive training seminars can be tailored to meet the needs of the church or group hosting it. The programme is usually presented on a weekday evening in two halves, each lasting around 40 minutes, with a 20 minute interval in between and a Q&A session afterwards. This will include an opportunity to hear about how Urban Saints can serve churches in its work with children and young people, plus the chance to look at various resources during the interval. Longer weekend sessions are available on request.
