Welcome, are there children in your service with Sensory Processing Disorder? This week we take a look at the signs and symptoms and the steps early childhood professionals can take to support kids with this condition. Also, how to celebrate the International Year of Indigenous Languages.
How Sensory Processing Disorder affects children
One in 20 children in Australia suffer from Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), and yet it's still not that widely understood or managed effectively. Children with the condition often struggle to cope with simple daily tasks, may have difficulty learning and making friends, and can be generally uncomfortable, emotional or difficult at many times throughout the day.

It's essential that early childhood workers fully understand the disorder and how to manage children under their care who have it. So, let's have a close look at SPD, the signs and symptoms, plus some ways that carers can help children who have SPD.
How to celebrate indigenous languages in your centre
Languages are an important part of who we are as people and our cultural identity. They help us communicate, educate, integrate socially and develop, in addition to linking us to our individual identity, traditional culture and memory. Yet sadly, many languages are fast disappearing globally.

In an effort to honour and raise awareness for all the different languages around the world and help those who speak them, the United Nations has declared 2019 the Year of Indigenous Languages (IYIL 2019). Here's how you can support and celebrate indigenous languages in your early childhood service.
