Event Trainers
Keylee Tesar, MS, LPC-S

Sensory development begins in the womb and continues throughout childhood. We know from brain research that the senses are the route to connection, attachment, and learning. There must be sensory stimulation for the neural pathways in a child's brain to develop and mature. This training will build a foundational understanding of sensory development and how this impacts one's ability to thrive and attach. We will explore what sensory needs may look like and what needs lie beneath a child's behavior. When it comes to coping skills, we must consider what the body and mind find comforting. What is calming for one person may cause another to be agitated. We will learn about internal senses and how to use that knowledge to increase coping and introduce coping skills specific to sensory preferences.
