Learn how to identify sensory processing disorder and how inappropriate, or dangerous behaviours, can be replaced with safe and appropriate alternatives. Sensory seeking and stimming behaviour can be challenging. We can help autistic individuals embrace their senses safely, to enable self regulation in any given situation. Visitors to the clinic will be given a habit changing diary and all the information necessary to start our 30 day programme after they leave the show. Visitors will also be invited to a follow-up phone call or email to provide extra help to make the new habits stick.

Book a session in this clinic to gain a snapshot assessment of your child’s sensory needs. Parents can attend with or without their children, and by answering 38 questions on the child’s daily life, will receive a sensory profile indicating any specific areas of concern. If significant sensory impairments are indicated in the questionnaire, you will receive a guide explaining what this means, and information on how you can support your child to overcome this barrier. The clinic will be run by Emma Griffiths, a highly trained and qualified teacher with 16 years experience in both Mainstream Primary, Secondary settings and the Special School Sector.
