Making Sense of Sensory Behaviour - Falkirk Council Booklet

This excellent booklet published by Falkirk Council provides lots of useful information and ideas for supporting your child's sensory behaviours.

Making Sense of Sensory Behaviour (A Practical Approach at Home for Parents and Carers)

This booklet is designed to help us become more aware of the effects of sensory information and how it may impact on life skills and behaviour. By thinking and planning positive sensory experiences we can help understand how to best manage situations some young people find over/under-whelming.  Avoiding a disliked or upsetting sensory experience may help the young person with the sensory issue calm down and be able to take part in daily tasks.
