MomChildAs we start to emerge from our COVID cocoons, our families are facing a new set of challenges related to sensory processing and regulation. Many children are getting exposed to a much more sensory enriched world than they have experienced in the last year and a half; may be facing new sensory challenges related to masking and social distancing; and may be adjusting to new schedules and routines, increased structure, and increased demands for social interaction, and sensory, behavioral, and emotional regulation.

This presentation will apply a sensory processing lens to our “return to normal,” examine the difficulties children and families may face, and discuss strategies for preparing and supporting children and families.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will understand the impact of factors related to COVID on sensory processing, self-regulation, and behavior.
  • Participants will be able to identify situations related to the return to in-person experiences that might present sensory-related challenges for children and families.
  • Participants will be able to identify strategies to prepare and support children and families for experiences presenting sensory and regulatory challenges.
