All the information we receive about the world comes through our senses. Sometimes, people’s senses do not process information as they should and the brain ends up like a ‘traffic jam’ of information. This can affect behaviour and, for children and young people, their ability to learn and do well in school.

Corinna Laurie, a specialist occupational therapist, looks at:

> our senses, and how they can affect behaviour

> strategies to reduce the impact of sensory issues on behaviour

> ideas that can help to remove barriers to learning.

Written for professionals who work with students with autism, this book also offers a range of photocopiable resources for use in education settings.
