Sensory processing is a term used to describe how information we receive from our eight senses is noticed, sorted, and used by our brain.  For some children their sensory development is different, this may mean that they struggle to take part in everyday childhood activities. This Sensory Processing Pathway signposts information and advice available in Somerset to help identify problems and find strategies to use at home and in education.

For further information and support within education settings see also the Somerset Sensory Processing Handbook Guidance for practitioners in Somerset.
