A Sensory Training Course For Parents, Teachers and Professionals

Our SenseAbility Course - Information Sheet describes in more detail our intensive one day training course and why it was developed. The course is especially suited for parents, teachers and professionals who want to understand more about how the behaviours, difficulties or under-performance they see may be related to sensory processing difficulties or anomalies, how these can cause educational difficulties and have a wide impact upon an individual's behaviour, sociability and performance. 

Regrettably, problems caused by sensory difficulties are often not recognised or they are misunderstood, yet the right help can make significant differences to social, behavioural or academic performance.  

The course covers:

  • how the senses develop
  • how the sensory systems affect performance
  • what to look for
  • what can be done to help sensory problems and improve performance. 

The knowledge gained can be used at home or the movement and sensory training can be built into the curriculum at school. 

The course comes with extensive documentation.

We also offer an expanded Sensory Development Programme (SDP) – 3 Day Professional Course.

Please enquire about potential dates for both the 1 and 3 Day courses which can be offered at our Centre, Online or at your premises by arrangement.

Therapists and Practitioner Training Courses

For those wanting to move into one-to-one therapeutic work with children or to integrate sensory training into their existing work, The Sound Learning Centre offer suitably qualified individuals Practitioner Training for Auditory Integration Training (AIT) and also Lightwave Stimulation (LWS). Both training courses are of 5 days duration and delivered by Pauline Allen, Founder and Principal of The Sound Learning Centre. Pauline founded the Centre in 1994, working with sound and light therapies to help children and adults with learning and sensory difficulties. She is a founder member of the ILA, a dyslexia specialist, neurodevelopmentalist and an experienced trainer.

Auditory Integration Training (AIT)

Pre-eminent sound therapy that works with underlying sensory issues associated with auditory processing difficulties, and frequently implicated in issues with speech, language and learning.  Sound therapy can often help with social, emotional, behavioural and academic performance.

Lightwave Stimulation (LWS)

Well-established light therapy to help address light processing deficiencies which often seem to correlate with various learning, behavioural, reading and social difficulties. By re-balancing the autonomic nervous system, it can have profound positive effects on physical and emotional well-being.
