My Specialist Experience Teaching Children with Sensory Processing Disorder

My Specialist Experience Teaching Students with Sensory Processing Disorder: When working with children with a Sensory Processing Disorder/Issue, it is imperative to create an environment that makes them feel comfortable to learn. I take time to get to know what methods and strategies help them the most and ensure that any findings are shared between the Occupational Therapist (OT), parents and me. It is important to work sensitively with the child to help minimise any negative experiences. With a tailored plan of physical activities, usually drawn up by an OT, I can support your child by incorporating their Sensory Diet into their sessions. Depending on the issue, I have found that a ‘fidget toy’, ear defenders, now/next visual timetables, movement breaks and a thoughtful environment (away from flashing lights/windows/noise) can support the child and help them to achieve their goals.
