WISAPSP parents, join us for this informative webinar, Sensory Issues and Trauma! When working with children who have experienced trauma, it can be difficult to determine how to deal with the behaviors they show. In fact, some of their behaviors can result from an intersection of trauma, sensory issues, and other developmental issues. This workshop will help identify where challenging behaviors are coming from, and effective and efficient ways to meet children where they are to help work through and address them.
