Out of the box thinking

Applying to a local charity to fund for training is a different way to engage our services. This is what a parent in Market Harborough did when she realised that school staff couldn’t access sensory processing training any other way. The Market Harborough and Bowden’s Charity agreed to fund a half day interactive workshop for staff at a Market Harborough primary school. Opportunities were provided to explore sensory preferences, to experience sensory overload and to try out sensory equipment- including sour sweets and a vibrating pillow!

Discussions included strategies to help children stay calm and alert, accommodations to the environment for children with autism or sensory processing difficulties, and how to provide routine and predictable timetabling to support all children.

Please get in touch with us if you would like to discuss staff or parent training. We have a range of workshops and training topics available, and we can work with you to provide bespoke training tailored to your needs.
