As DIR® practitioners sensory processing is at the forefront of our mind and vital to our work. Mindfulness practices are complementary to sensory integration/processing frameworks and each can enhance the other’s potency, thereby improving outcomes for clients. These series of classes will introduce the basic tenets of mindfulness and its use in combination with sensory processing. We will explore the evidence supporting the use of mindfulness with neurodivergent populations, especially with autistic children, adults and the people that serve them, while also learning concrete mindfulness practices that can be incorporated into sensory-based work with children. At the same time we know that relationships is at the heart of the DIR® approach including the relationship with ourselves. Mindfulness practices teach us how to be more present and aware, while getting to know our own nervous systems, so we can be better partners to those we serve.
