Eating, drinking and speaking are all intertwined with the sensory system, many times without us even thinking about it. TalkTools Instructor, Monica Purdy, will be imparting her expertise and passion about the importance of understanding all 8 senses of the sensory system — with a focus on the hidden senses (proprioception, vestibular, interoception), as well as when sensory processing is disordered.
