Sensory processing difficulties can trigger extreme discomfort to loud noises, bright lights, strong smells, crowds and more. This can lead to sensory overload or emotional withdrawal.
These challenges are prevalent in autism and can also affect those with anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), trauma and other emotional or behavioral issues.
Everyday activities like visiting the dentist, getting a haircut or attending events can become daunting, causing individuals and families to miss out on community experiences.
Fraser Sensory Certified™ Supports and Training are intended to assist businesses, employers, workers, volunteers, and others as they strive to provide positive sensory experiences for individuals and families who have sensory processing differences. While Fraser and its training staff attempt to thoroughly address specific topics and provide tips and consultations relevant to serving individuals and families with sensory processing differences, it is not possible to include a discussion of every possible situation or personal experience related to your clients, customers, staff, event, or business.
Additionally, it should be understood that Fraser and its staff provide this service as an educational and community support and does not result in a license to offer services that are provided by trained clinical professionals. Thus, this information must be understood as a tool for addressing common symptoms, reliefs, and business practices to help with sensory processing differences for the public or employees. This information does not create additional responsibilities or obligations between Fraser and the contracting party. Fraser is not providing legal advice at any time or any way to others.
