Main Event c7.45pm Sensory Integration. We are pleased to welcome back Kate Cartwright, one of the Occupational Therapists at CAAS, covering the East Dorset area. Kate has been working for CAAS since 2010 and her role involves OT functional assessments and advice on managing daily routines; sensory integration assessments, interventions, therapy and running the sensory group; and vocational assessments including helping people consider what roles will suit them and maintaining employment. Kate has a post graduate certificate in Sensory Integration and more recently has gained training on assessment of DCD/Dyspraxia through Dyspraxia UK. Sensory processing for people with Asperger's Syndrome can be unusual and can lead to more intense experiences which affect their patterns of behaviour. A greater awareness and understanding of this is something which may help both people with AS and the people they live with to cope with these experiences. Kate will be speaking about sensory processing and new research that has emerged around how people with AS experience and notice their body signals, known as Interoception.
And Finally ..... Time after the Main Event to circulate, chat, seek advice or offer help and generally catch up.
