I have created this course specifically for education staff. During this training you will gain insight into why we may see certain characteristics from our students, what this means and how you can support them further in their learning.

You will learn

  • why our senses are so important in our learning and development
  • what we need to take into consideration in our classrooms
  • the sensory needs behind different students in your classroom, such as fidgety students, noisy students & clumsy students
  • how to recognise the best learning style for a student
  • how to create a sensory profile for your students which can then be carried through to the following years

As part of this training I will explain

  1. the sensory aspects and characteristics certain students have
  2. what this means in regards to their sensory processing needs (seeking, avoiding, discriminating difficulties)
  3. the teaching style (and learning style) which best suits these students

With all this knowledge you will then feel more confident not just in understanding a students sensory needs for learning but also how you can adapt their teaching to support the whole class.

You will also receive a free download to print which lists the incredible skills that some of our students with SPD have.

Born and raised in Devon, I founded Sensory Spectacle in 2014. Originally from the field of Graphic Design, I was captivated by the autistic sensory world whilst working in a centre in West London that supports children and young people with complex health needs and disabilities.

Throughout the 7 years I worked there I set up a sensory toy library, qualified as a regional Makaton tutor & trained the staff to support sensory needs of the children. Alongside my work, I completed my Masters degree in Art & Science from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London receiving a distinction for my immersive installations focusing on the autistic sensory world. My experience and understanding of Sensory Processing Difficulties (SPD) inspired me to educate the public on how people with SPD may experience their surroundings and thus Sensory Spectacle was born.

Sensory Spectacle creates immersive environments to help educate about SPD. I design and build immersive experiences alongside people with SPD to help society experience for themselves how SPD can impact daily lives. I was commissioned to create the Sensory Classroom in 2015 at The Autism Show in London, Birmingham & Manchester. Following on from this I also created the Transition Classroom the following year 2016 for the same event.

In early 2016 I worked with Queensmill School in London to research and create the Sensory Dining Room training to teach, through experience, about sensory difficulties at mealtimes - this included a 3 course meal as well as environmental factors.

In 2022 The Wellcome Trusts' public engagement fund funded me to create the Sensory Supermarket as part of a larger research project with researchers from Oxford and Reading university.

I now provide these immersive experiences as in-house training for schools, care settings and other settings.

These online courses are created since 2014, working in special education & care. They are skills and topics which I came across and feel are really important to share with others to ensure the level of care we provide suits the children and adults we care for.

This course is perfect for anyone working in education looking to understand the learning styles of your students and how to support them.
