Develop Your Sensory Lexiconary
Officially Accredited CPD via The Goldsmith Centre.

The Sensory Projects are very excited to announce the launch of Lex Lite - a series of three in-house training days that cover the content of the Lexiconary course in detail with time given to apply the learning to your particular setting. 

Previously the Lexiconary has only been available as a ticketed event as its extraordinary nature made it too tricky to take on the road as an in-house experience, however in response to an increasing number of requests we have now found a way to take the show on the road and bring it to you in all its sensory abundance.

Lex Lite 1: Vision, Proprioception and Vestibulation
Lex Lite 2: Hearing, Tasting and Smelling
Lex Lite 3: Touch, Interoception and Agency

Each Lex Lite will cover the development of the sensory systems listed above, showing you how to apply this knowledge to enhance engagement, develop cognition, support communication and promote wellbeing for people with profound disabilities, as well as supplying you with ideas and insights to enliven your current practice.

Contact for further information, more details will be added to the website once the 2019 tour has come to a close.

Dates for the 2020 tour will be announced soon. To see a map of where the Lexiconary has toured already and where it is heading in future click here

People have been blogging about their experience of the Lexiconary, you can get an insider perspective from their blogs here:

If you have blogged about the Lexiconary please let us know:

Develop your sensory lexiconary and learn to use it to promote engagement and communication with those who experience meaning in a primarily sensory way. 

This course will teach you about the development of seven sensory systems and show you how to select and organise sensory resources in such a way as to engage Sensory Beings in conversations, whilst also supporting their mental well-being and developing their cognition.

Everyone is welcome on these days but they are particularly suitable for:
  • People who support individuals with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
  • People who are looking to use sensory communication with individuals in the later stages of dementia.
  • People who work with babies and children in the early years looking to develop their sensory practice.
  • Creative individuals looking to develop sensory works to engage with sensory communicators.
  • People who work in special schools or run groups that support students from special schools.
  • People with a particular interest in sensory literacy.

Delegates on previous Lexiconaries have included: parents, foster carers, teachers from special and mainstream settings, portage workers, speech and language therapists, CAMHs team members, artists and actors, support workers, staff from hospital education teams, children's hospice practitioners, staff from dementia care settings, people supporting refugees and victims of trauma, people who support babies in the first months of life, staff members from CICs looking to support inclusion in society, social researchers, family members and more. I look forward to welcoming new diverse delegates in the future.
