The more practiced we are to ‘Bounce’ back from any state – to a calm, happy one – the more resilient we become – and that’s why this self-regulation program is called Bounce! **Understand how to Manage Demand Avoidance Objectives: ** To group known activity demands into a difficulty rating, understand the emotions linked to this alongside the child’s nervous system response To work collaboratively to find solutions to known difficulties of demand activities To prioritize activity demands by giving the child a sense of control over how they will achieve each step To give the child a sense of control over a difficult demand activity by providing them the opportunity to select what order they complete the task To work collaboratively to provide a restorative approach to conflict To understand how to regulate the nervous system back to a calm ‘green’ state Audience: Children aged 11yrs + that struggle with demands, including children with a PDA profile This Pack Contains: An Introduction to the Bounce Program An introduction to the Polyvagal Theory Understand how the Bounce Response Scale links to emotions Activity 1: Rate Demands against the Bounce Scale Activity 2: Problem Solve Solutions Activity 3: Prioritize Demands Activity 4: Provide Flexibility Activity 5: Conflict Resolution Activity 6: Identify Strategies for Grounding, Soothing and Coping Understanding the Physical Responses: Cold, Hot, Wobbly, Fizzy & Calm Emotion Cards linked to: Cold, Hot, Wobbly, Fizzy & Calm Physical Sensation Images Bounce Response Scale Mats/Posters Grounding, Soothing and Calming Cards Grounding, Soothing and Calming Images Grounding, Soothing and Calming PECs Emotion Vocabulary Lists Bounce© A Resilience Framework is the intellectual property of Tracy Chadwick, it is trademarked and under copyright law.

Especially those children with the following profile(s): ADHD ASC/PDA Dyspraxia It has been broken down into Stages: Stage 1: Profile Needs In this section - you are reviewing sensory needs and getting a base-line, so that once the interventions have been implemented, you know if they have been effective. Stage 2: Teach the Child In this section - you have been given the resources to guide the child into understanding what their behaviours are telling them about their sensory needs. Stage 3: A Sensory Diet This section is all about having a Sensory Lifestyle, to give the child a ‘diet’ of sensory input throughout their day. There are resources for families and school settings - so that everyone is working towards the same goal!
