How to Become a Sensory Chef
"Creating Sensory Diets that Work"
Just as the body needs food to survive and function, the brain requires sensation. Putting together the correct combination of sensations that will offer the brain a balanced diet of sensations requires the skills of a sensory chef. In this one day class, clinicians will learn specific protocols, based on the H.O.P.E Method (Harper's Optimal Protocols for Enrichment) to create balanced sensory meals and sensory snacks with the goal of fostering and maintaining self-regulatory skills throughout the day. Included will be how to address difficult situation, increase compliance with the sensory diet and demonstrate positive outcomes. This program will provide participants with practical, easy to implement strategies for the home and school environment.
