Learn to recognise sensory needs and create nurturing sensory environments that give every baby and their family the best possible start.

When you understand the role of sensory experiences on a baby’s brain development, you can create environments that aid this process, support sleeping, posture, eating, play, regulation and connection and help them feel safe, secure and ready to explore the world.

Sensory integration training across neonatal, perinatal and Paediatric

Our online and in-person courses and mentoring help you better understand, observe and inform the role of sensory experiences and environments in infant and baby development. And you’ll get a practical framework to share your knowledge, guide your practice and create a more informed and enjoyable place to work.


Provide nurturing, sensory experiences for babies, families and staff in neonatal care

When a baby is born prematurely, their brain is not yet ready for the sensory overload that’s about to hit them. Shifting from task-based care to supporting parents to provide nurturing sensory experiences helps create calm and reduces stress for the baby, their family and the neonatal staff. 

Our Master Course and Neonatal Nurture courses helps neonatal multi disciplinary teams make this shift, improving the sensory experience for themselves and the staff and families they support.


Connect the sensory needs of both baby and parents

The first 1001 days from conception to two years is a crucial time for brain growth and future health and wellbeing. This development happens within the environment of relationships, especially the infant-parent relationship. Relationships/attachments develop on sensory interactions and exchange. In understanding the sensory needs of both parents and babies, we can help create better nurturing and attuned relationships and wellbeing. 

Our AOTA approved continuing education and NNA endorsed Master Course helps you think about infants’ and parents’ behaviours from a sensory perspective. You can learn how to recognise parents’ sensory needs and stress levels could be creating an unhelpful environment for the baby’s development — and understand how to create a more nurturing space to help.


Support families in providing appropriate sensory activities and experiences

Sensory experiences from birth to three years are acknowledged to influence brain development and behaviours across the life span. Therefore, the sensory environment of the young child is of great importance.

Our Master course helps you better observe and interpret infant and parent behaviours. It provides you with the tools to create nurturing sensory activities and environments to support child development, addressing developmental challenges.

“The Sensory Beginnings course is brilliantly designed to foster a deeper understanding of sensory development from a neurobiological perspective. It helps therapists synthesize their knowledge to better select therapeutic interventions to optimize outcomes for those in their care.

I especially enjoyed Emily and Lindsay's exemplary teaching skills and the rich clinical experiences they shared as content experts.

This terrific course will challenge you to think more deeply about sensory integration and ultimately elevate the therapeutic care you will provide for young families.”
