  • Develop an understanding that the sensory solutions that one may employ to overcome undesirable sensory input are often considered problematic behaviors instead of recognizing that the individual is problem-solving and figuring out their sensory differences.
  • Understand the necessity of having a broad range of strategies and tools that the person on the spectrum can choose from to meet their sensory needs across their lifetime.
  • Learn about proactive strategies to prevent unwanted sensory input and ways to self-regulate including a sensory scan.
  • Learn how individuals with autism advocate for their needs.
