Event description

Description

The Wisconsin Adoption & Permanency Support Program is hosting a workshop for adoptive, guardianship, kinship, and foster parents. In this presentation, we will learn how sensory processing interplays with the parent child relationship. We will discuss the specifics of sensory processing for both the child and the adult. From there we will use knowledge of arousal theory to explore strategies to effectively engage children both during periods of stress as well as in everyday tasks. Using the lens of co-regulation, parents can help their child to organize their behavior, interact more effectively with their world and find joy!
We are planning on having a follow-up session to this introduction workshop in the next few months.

Pizza and beverages provided!
