SENSORY ISSUES

These Shared Resources are included as examples of what has been developed in particular settings to provide information for staff, including supply and non teaching staff.. They may have to be adapted to meet needs in other contexts. We hope they give you ideas and inspiration to develop ones to suit your own school or pupil.

Asperger Syndrome and Sensory Issues

This document was adapted from  Asperger Syndrome and Sensory Issues  to encourage staff in a secondary school to question the sensory issues which may help interpret behaviours of some young people with Asperger Syndrome. By identifying the possible reason/s behind behaviours it is possible to provide personalised interventions to provide support. It could be used to review support for an individual pupil, or as a staff development task to identify a bank of interventions to be used consistently across the school.
