Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a condition that exists when sensory signals don’t get organised into appropriate responses. It can be referred to as a traffic jam that prevents certain parts of the brain from receiving the information needed to interpret sensory information correctly. This includes vision, audition, tactile, olfactory, taste, proprioception and the vestibular system which allows us to function in the main areas of life. To assist teachers, therapists and family members helping children with SPD we have thoughtfully created the Sensory Processing Disorder Pack for Young Children.

The Sensory Processing Disorder Pack for Young Children includes:

Early Intervention Games: Fun, Joyful Ways to Develop Social and Motor Skills in Children with Autism Spectrum or Sensory Processing Disorders

The Multisensory Handbook A guide for children and adults with sensory learning disabilities, 1st Edition

Sensory Dinosaurs

Play Better Games Enabling Children with Autism to Join in with Everyday Games

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a condition that exists when sensory signals don’t get organised into appropriate responses. It can be referred to as a traffic jam that prevents certain parts of the brain from receiving the information needed to interpret sensory information correctly. This includes vision, audition, tactile, olfactory, taste, proprioception and the vestibular system which allows us to function in the main areas of life. To assist teachers, therapists and family members helping children with SPD we have thoughtfully created the Sensory Processing Disorder Pack for Young Children.

The Sensory Processing Disorder Pack for Young Children includes:

Early Intervention Games: Fun, Joyful Ways to Develop Social and Motor Skills in Children with Autism Spectrum or Sensory Processing Disorders – a handy resource filled with games to play with young children who have Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or other sensory processing disorders (SPD). The games are designed to help children feel comfortable in social situations and teach other basic lessons including beginning and end, spatial relationships, hand-eye coordination, and more. Games can also be used in regular classrooms to encourage inclusion.

The Multisensory Handbook A guide for children and adults with sensory learning disabilities, 1st Edition – offers an abundance of exciting multisensory stimulation ideas that can be applied to communication, play, leisure and recreation, therapy and education. Practical resources also show how to monitor and review applications to ensure they are being used in the most effective and enjoyable ways possible.

Sensory Dinosaurs – This is an engaging and thoroughly well-thought out book that will help teachers, parents, carers and children in understanding why some children struggle in school as a result of sometimes undiagnosed or unrecognised challenges. A short description of a sensory/motor condition precedes each story – the challenges faced described through a variety of dinosaur characters. The story is followed up with a worksheet for the child and supporting adult to work through, and there are practical strategies recommended for both school and home.

Play Better Games Enabling Children with Autism to Join in with Everyday Games – Ordinary games are an important vehicle for children’s learning. They provide a powerful, naturally occurring learning environment that is physical, playful and fun. Playing games requires interpersonal skills in language, thought, social behavior, creativity, self-regulation and skilful use of the body. When children play games together they develop the following key capacities:

• Cooperative behavior

• Focused attention

• Social understanding

• Holding information in mind

• Motor, spatial and sequential planning

• Self-regulation, e.g impulse control, coping with excitement, controlled exertion

• Collaborative behavior and negotiation

• Self-expression and creativity

.

Games provide a social experience that is emotionally compelling, where children laugh and have fun and do not realise they are interacting, problem solving, negotiating and cooperating with each other. Play Better Games is designed to help practitioners and parents to think about what might prohibit their children from joining in with games and plan effective strategies for support. It will be of benefit to teachers, therapists, group works, play workers, midday supervisors and support workers, as well as to parents and siblings of children with autism.
