Autumn Winter Sensory Story

Autumn Winter Sensory Story

This is a sensory story I created for my topic 'seasons'. This was written for a PMLD/ CLDD class. I have written it with the sentence, the sense, the sensory experience and what I and my TAs are looking for and observing throughout the sessions. Repeat story throughout the term to enable the child to develop anticipation, investigation, awareness, preference and much more. Could also be used in an EYFS KS1 class.

Mood Toolbox: Strategies To Empower Children

Mood Toolbox: Strategies To Empower Children

Mood toolbox is a practical intervention for parents, teachers and practitioners that will positively support children with learning how to effectively regulate their moods and emotions. This program was developed by Natalie Clarke with the assistance of her friend, a behaviour specialist (40 years experience) to help Natalie’s son with ASD. The intervention assists Ben in understanding his own emotions and has empowered him to select strategies from the toolbox to use when needed. He has become more independent in his choices of how he regulates his emotions. Natalie has three degrees, including a Masters in Special Education and over 30 years experience teaching in Public, State and Autistic Schools. Over the years, Natalie has assisted many children in learning how to regulate their own emotions. Mood toolbox is a practical approach and can be used individually or in the whole class environment. It is especially helpful for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Social Emotional Disorder (SED). A fun character affectionately called Moodzie helps to encourage children to recognize their own moods. Each Moodzie has a colour that represents different moods, such as red for anger, blue for sadness etc. Learning to navigate the emotional roads of children can be challenging, but for the impacted children, discerning and working through their own moods can be even more trying. Some children may not know how to communicate their feelings, but with the Mood Tool Box, their moods can be explored through Moodzie’s various adventure stories and other support materials. Visit our website to learn all about additional strategies from experts around the world that can help with emotional regulation and moods. Also, discover where to download our books and apps. Additional materials such as certificates, activities and stickers are available from our site to further help children choose happy. www.lifelearningapps.com/mood-toolbox/
