For the first time ever, Meg Faure, OT and author of esteemed parenting books including Baby Sense, Sleep Sense, Feeding Sense and Weaning Sense, is presenting her popular Infant Sense Integration Training courses as live, online webinars in collaboration with Sensory Integration Education.
Open to all and available globally, these three live, online training days will NOW ALSO BE AVAILABLE AS RECORDINGS for those who cannot make the live dates.
Infancy and the two years beyond are known as ‘The 1001 critical days’. It is during this period that the infant develops the foundations for future learning, relationships and behaviour. Click on the links below to book your place on each course.

At birth, a newborn’s genetic and congenital make-up provides a base for their engagement style, based on the infant’s sensory profile. The way the infant is nurtured, their early relationships and goodness of fit between sensory processing and the environment, strongly influences the baby’s ability to self-regulate. Adaptive self-regulation is the foundation of most aspects of learning and function.
This course will equip therapists to recognise a baby/toddler’s sensory processing style, assist parents to build constructive early engagement and relationships and in so doing promote self-regulation in the infant and toddler.
20 November 2020 (starts 9.30 am UK time)
Starting in utero, the infant begins to establish self-regulation and over the first 5 years of life must self-regulate mood, sleep and feeding. Self-regulation is developed in the context of inherent factors (sensory integration) and extrinsic factors (relationship).
This course will look at three key areas of self-regulation in infancy and toddlers – mood, sleep and feeding. Therapists will understand how typically developing babies self-regulate these areas and how to recognise infant regulatory disorders of mood, sleep and feeding. The course deals with assessment and management of these areas.
29 January 2021 (starts 9.30 am UK time)
The intrinsic contribution of sensory processing has a fundamental effect on all areas of development. Infants with sensory processing deficits may manifest with behavioural, social and emotional difficulties.
This course will look at sensory integration deficits and social-emotional deficits. Therapists will learn assessment strategies for assessing SI deficits in infants. Treatment approaches, including working through the mother and hands on SI interventions will be explored. Treatment techniques for social-emotional deficits in infancy will be discussed.
These courses are live, interactive, online workshops direct with Meg, with each day comprising three sessions of 1.5 hours with a break between each session. Please note to proceed to Parts 2 and 3, you must have undertaken Part 1 or purchased the recording of Part 1. The courses are open to all and prior knowledge of sensory integration is not required.
In continuing recognition of the difficult times due to Covid-19, we have reduced the usual fee of £95 per course to ONLY £65 per course. This is amazing value for 5.5 hours of live CPD training with a world-renowned presenter. Video recordings of the sessions will be available to purchase after the events for a limited period at £65 each.
