This three-day course will look at the theories that provide the framework for SAI. Emphasis will be in the impact of trauma on sensory processing and on the capacity for self and co-regulation. Participants will learn the neurosequential approach to intervention; that is, when it is most effective to use interventions such as narrative work, play therapy, and education.
They will learn the principles of up-regulation and down-regulation to enable physiological adaption for social engagement and academic learning.

From Our Founder
” It has been a great passion of mine to ensure that children, young people and families have access to support that strengthens families and improves children’s life chances. When I came back from working in the States, I could not find the support my children needed. I set up Jump Start to help my children, and hope that you too find Jump Start still offers the same friendly, professional, non judgemental support to you and yours.”
– Claire Pemrick
