Trauma/Stress Experience and Sensory Processing – FREE Parent Seminar – September 2018

When: September 6, 2018 7:30pm-9:00pm

While we may identify a stress event/experience (separation from a caregiver, medical intervention, abuse, neglect, or another negative experience) as being “bigger” than another, the chemical reaction in the body is the same regardless of the “size” of the stress event.
Therefore, it is important to recognize how stress events and trauma impact a child’s body. Stress events can cause kids to have a heightened awareness of sensation, leading to sensory processing challenges, which can contribute to poor self-regulation and negative behaviors.
Learn how sensory-based interventions at Leaps and Bounds can positively impact how a child’s body processes trauma and stress events.

**There will be no cost for this seminar. Seating is limited. Call 636-928-5327 or email info@leapsandboundskids.com to RSVP to reserve your spot. Please include your phone number if you register by email.**
