Empowering children to explore their senses.
Sensory Group is step by step a 12-24 week programme designed for children who have difficulties engaging with sensory-based play. Book 1 targets sensory sensitivity or sensory avoidance, joint attention and turn taking. The group is suitable for children with autism or developmental delays who need extra support to engage in messy play and adult led teaching. It is designed for use in an early year’s school setting, but could also be used in a therapy setting or at home if additional children were available to help support the group.
Sensory Group is written by occupational therapist Kim Griffin and draws on her extensive experience of working with children with autism, developmental delays and sensory processing difficulties. Sensory Group would be a perfect addition to any classroom looking for a structured but fun way to encourage children to explore more with their senses.
The manual provides a clear outline on how to run the group including:
A background to the senses and why the group is structured the way it is
Clear rules for running the group
Weekly outline for the group and strategies to support children’s engagement
Safety precautions for running the group
Risk assessments and Pre and post assessments for outcome measurement
