A set of 54 activity cards with fun and creative scooter board activities. A great resource to have in a school.
A set of 4 scooter boards from Rompa. One of the best scooter boards I think you can purchase. I would normally click 2 together to make one board.
A great piece of equipment for playgrounds that provides vestibular and proprioceptive input.
A new piece of equipment available through Southpaw UK.
I haven’t seen one yet but advertised to provide the same input as the Zuma chair but for those who like sitting at floor level.
The difficulty with many of the cheaper trampettes is they don’t last long when used in schools. This trampette is very high quality and is much more durable. They are much more expensive but might well pay for themselves in the end.
Sensory Processing and Autism
12 June 2019
How can we understand and address some of the sensory difficulties we see in children and adults with autism? How can I extend my knowledge and skills in working in this area?
Increasingly, teachers and health professionals working with children and adults with autism are expected to have an understanding of the sensory processing difficulties faced by those with autism, as well as the ability to implement simple strategies and alter the environment to accommodate the individual’s sensory needs. Additionally, for establishments that are seeking Autism Accreditation, ‘Sensory Issues’ is one of the core standards.
The aim of this one day extension course is to provide teachers and health professionals, who have a basic understanding of sensory processing difficulties, with the skills needed to apply that understanding to the everyday difficulties that children and adults with autism experience in different settings. This course will further develop participant’s knowledge base including the neuroscience of sensory processing, and the ability to then apply this knowledge to set up more complex strategies, both for individuals as well as whole school/curriculum/service strategies. There will be a practical session in the large sensory room at The Space Centre.
