These slides were developed for Creative Education in June 2023.
Here’s the session overview:
Autism & ADHD: Sensory Regulation in the Classroom
Work with Pooky to better understand your neurodivergent learners’ sensory needs and how to meet them with small changes to your everyday classroom practice. With your new understanding, you’ll feel more able to recognise and respond to your students’ sensory needs before they reach a state of hyper or hypo arousal (meltdown or shutdown) as well as having a range of ideas and strategies to make your classroom and approach more inclusive for every learner.
If you were there, I hope these are a helpful aide-memoire. If not, I hope they make enough sense without me to be useful. If you’d like to download them, you can do so via this page on slideshare.
