Sensitivity to sensory stimuli

Identified provision and / or need

  • Provide sensory breaks and snacks.
  • Be aware of sensory needs and be flexible with the uniform policy when necessary.
  • Consider the environment e.g. noise, room temperature, visual stimuli, proximity. Use of an audit tool would be helpful.
  • Have a flexible approach to transitions e.g. between lessons and to and from school.
  • Provide access to a haven / low arousal space, if needed.
  • Develop a sensory profile for the individual children and young people.
