Join Becky from Sensory Spectacle where she will be sharing knowledge about Sensory Processing Disorder. She will be exploring what it is, how we can recognise needs, how we can support needs, chatting with other professionals to share knowledge and most importantly, hear insights from children and adults with SPD themselves.
This week I interview mum Jo who Becky met on her training and has done everything to help her daughter get the support she deserves in her mainstream school. Understanding her sensory needs at home are part of the journey.
This is the start of a series of 4 podcasts where we explore sensory characteristics/behaviours in depth. I’m this episode Becky explains what these are or how they can be recognised. Following on from this we are talking with parents and practitioners about how they have found identifying and supporting their child or students sensory needs and it’s importance.
In this episode Becky talks about the common frustration among parents of not feeling like they can plan things. Changes in our environment like the weather can have a huge impact on children and adults with SPD
Ensuring all of your students are supported can be really difficult when you have 30 very different needs. Here Becky gives you some tips and information about how you CAN support all needs in the classroom.
In this episode Becky talks about the importance of understanding why some people May find certain self care activities over whelming like showering or brushing teeth. As well as covering the self care of the person we are supporting. How can we understand why someone may bite etc.
It’s likely that most people we support are already self regulating with strategies they have discovered. Some people may need some guidance and support in this. Here Becky is explaining how you can do this.
In this episode I explain the sensory aspects relating to why we might meet students who are noisy. I give insight relating to seeking and avoiding characteristics and the need to feel in control for people who are hyper sensitive. Also learn how to create a student sensory profile.
In this episode I am beginning to break down some student profiles to help us feel more confident when teaching fidgety students. You can learn lots more about this on our online training - sensory profiles for teachers www.sensoryspectacle.co.uk/online-traininh
In this episode I am explaining to you why we may see certain sensory characteristics such as breaking things easily, throwing things, crashing into things, stomping around, always being rough when playing. As always you can learn more about this with our online training ‘becoming a sensory detective’ and our books. Find them on our website www.sensoryspectacle.co.uk
In this episode I am helping you to understand the sensory aspects as to why we might notice our child humming, repeating things or constantly talking. It’s important we accurately recognise and understand the sensory purpose behind these behaviours so we can provide the right support. Learn more about personalising sensory behaviours in our online training ‘becoming a sensory detective’ find out more via our website www.sensoryspectacle.co.uk
In this episode I am explaining why it’s important for our children or adults who we are caring for to be able to regulate and why we may recognise different sensory characteristics in different environments. Regulating at home can appear very differently to regulating at school.
Here I am explaining some of the sensory elements relating to why some children and adults with Sensory Processing Difficulties may struggle washing their hands. We are currently in isolation to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and so it is really important we understand this.
Here I explain some of the aspects relating to difficulties with food choices and eating for people with SPD and why it’s important to consider all aspects of sensory processing when implementing into someone’s sensory lifestyle.
