Sensory Circuits (for teachers and staff in education)
This course will run once per term during the academic year, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for dates.
Many children in school have not developed the the basic self regulation and sensory motor skills that lay the foundation for academic learning to take place. Research has shown that by developing children’s foundational motor skills, through sensory motor programmes in schools, progress is seen in academic and learning skills such as handwriting, reading, concentration, attention and hand-eye coordination.
This course aims to equip all staff with the knowledge to identify children with motor learning difficulties including useful screening tools and ideas for individual and group sensory motor programmes using readily available school gym and playground equipment.
Thrive offers training and educational sessions some of the topics offered include:
- Introduction to handwriting development and strategies for children with handwriting difficulties.
- Sensory strategies to promote attention and participation in class.
- Helping the child with coordination difficulties.
- Sensory motor development.
- Self regulation and emotional development
- Independence skills
- Introduction to Sensory Processing
- Embedding occupational therapy in schools- introducing our approach to partnering with schools.
Thrive can also offer bespoke training for a school, cluster of schools or group of individuals. Please contact the team for more information or to discuss your needs.
