Developing Sensory Resources to Encourage Learning through Play and Exploration with Sophie Cole, Early Years Practitioner and Primary School Special Education Teacher.
This webinar would be particularly suitable for Teachers and SNAs working with students with Intellectual disabilities. Parents of children with special educational needs would also benefit from this workshop.
This webinar will focus on practical, evidence-based strategies to support students learning through the use of sensory resources. These provide students with a stimulating environment which encourages learning through play and exploration. These resources promote independence and skill development in children with SEN. This will span a range of domains including learning, positive behaviour and life skills.
Developing Sensory Resources Workshop
This webinar will continue to explore sensory resources and discuss how they are of benefit to engage students in their learning.
Then we will look at art making and how it is a sensory experience. We will look at ways to explore art in the wider curriculum.
Finally, we will explore relaxation, mindfullness and meditation strategies and techniques used to support students in the learning environment. For Teachers and SNAs.
