North Somerset Support Group Thursday 7th July at The Firs, St Barnabas Centre, West Hill, Portishead BS20 6LN, from 7 – 9 pm.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming Linda Plowden from Therapy Space at our next Support Group.  

Linda’s aim is to help parents and families of children with difficulties (at home and/or school) understand their child’s behaviour from a sensory perspective rather than a behavioural one. Sensory Processing Disorder affects nearly every child who is struggling in life. She says ‘It is fascinating to unravel their problems as every child is different and unique and it is my pleasure to help you understand your own child who is precious and your main goal for them is to be happy.’

‘Many children will come to Therapy Space without diagnoses because they are struggling due to the following types of difficulties both at home and in school.

Handwriting, Co-ordination, Fine Motor Skills, Organisation, Listening, Attention, Behaviour, Communication, 1 in 10 children struggle with these typical problems.’

 Linda has trained parents and staff on both sensory processing disorder and attachment difficulties, the training is excellent and the enlightens parents and staff on behaviours which are sensory based with many strategies given.

We do hope you will join us for what will be a very interesting and useful talk.
