Module Description

This introductory module explores how people respond to information from the senses and how this can be experienced differently by people on the spectrum. Learners will be better able to recognise the impact of these differences for people on the spectrum and how to respond to sensory needs to provide effective support.

By the end of this module you should be able to:

  • describe and discuss how people process sensory information and how to identify your own sensory preferences
  • understand differences in how people on the autism spectrum experience and process sensory information
  • identify the impact of sensory differences on every day life for people on the autism spectrum
  • recognise and respond to sensory needs of people on the autism spectrum.
