A manual of focused sensory activities to encourage individuals, small groups and whole classes to stay active.
Increased physical activity can reduce undesirable behaviours such as fidgeting or being unable to concentrate and settle.
The manual is divided into 4 sections: whole class sensory movement breaks, sensory activities to include in PE, Short sensory breaks to be done outside the classroom and longer sensory movement breaks. Each section suggests various activities, gives guidance on how to implement and explains the benefits of completing them.
Written by two Paediatric Occupational Therapists who have extensive experience working with children with special needs.
