Making Sense of Sensory Processing Differences
What is the event?

“Making Sense of Sensory Differences” – a one day conference linking the sensory experiences of children and adults with autism with the science behind sensory differences.

The day will include talks on hyper-sensitivity (to sound, light, smell, etc); bodily sensitivity (anxiety and heartbeat); autism and synaesthesia (a ‘merging of the senses’).
Those attending will hear from:
Leading researcher from the Universities of Glasgow, Nottingham, Sussex
Prof David Baguley, Prof Sarah Garfinkel, Dr James Hughes,
Dr David Simmons, Prof Julia Simner and Prof Jamie Ward
