This little video is my way of trying to raise some awareness of Sensory Processing. It is inspired by this post.
In a school classroom, mainstream or otherwise, you will find a wide mix of children, all with differing sensory needs. Some may be sensory seekers and others sensory avoiders. Their learning styles and abilities will also vary. So is there a way of decreasing anxiety and making a classroom inclusive for all these children without making anyone feel singled out? Here are ten brilliant ideas to try:
When you have a child with Sensory Processing Disorders there are a great many items out there which could help. Obviously each child is different so to use the right things for your child you need to look at their individual sensory needs and work out what to get. My sons favourite items which help are listed here!
It’s too hard to describe a meltdown because all you can think of when you are having a meltdown is nothing.
Your anxiety has been building all morning but this is the point where you really start to panic. Your heart is racing, your muscles tense, you start to sweat and your stomach starts to hurt!
Teeth brushing can be a huge challenge to parents of autistic children! It is also one of the most common challenges. Brushing teeth is a sensory experience, and for a lot of children it isn’t a very nice one!
