LC22-111A Integrating Sensory Play Into Your Classroom (Series of two sessions)

Sensory play has countless benefits including the development of gross and fine motor skills, supporting language development, problem solving skills and social interaction. Session 1 will outline what sensory play is and why we use it with the children we work with. It will entail simple and innovative ways of using sensory play activities, that accommodate all of our sensory systems.

Session 1 (SEptember 7th) will focus on sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. There will be a huge focus on regulation - including breathing techniques, brain breaks, and fidget toys. Information will be provided on valuable resources and recipes that will make sensory play part of your daily routine. 

In session two (September 14th) there will be further exploration of the benefits of sensory play and how it can be utilised in a classroom setting. There will be a more in-depth discussion on physical sensory play - our proprioceptive, vestibular and interoceptive systems - with a focus on regulation,  movement, rhythmic activities, messy play and the development of sensory trays.

These webinars are suitable for both teachers and special needs assistants.
