Peterborough Paston Pack. How to assess for, and use the therapy programmes it recommends.
Each course gives information on the development and background of the subject with practical tasks to develop the participants understanding.
You may be interested in having me come to your school and meet with the staff as well as visit several classrooms / review sensory circuits prior to presenting a workshop for your school staff. I will incorporate sensory strategies and ideas into a workshop presentation to help you meet your pupil’s sensory needs.
