Eating and the Senses with Joanna Grace

We are ending the school year with Joanna Grace who joins Dale to discuss Eating the Senses. Eating is such an emotive subject and the difficulties people with sensory differences have around eating cause enormous stress and upset at home and at school.

Listen to understand the sensory components of eating and find out how to support children to ensure the sensory experience isn’t so overwhelming.
