  • School support for children with sensory processing difficulties (full)

    • *** This event is now fully booked. ***

      OT/Physio team leader Jenny Featherstone wants to meet with parents to get feedback on a sensory toolkit she has developed for schools. The toolkit will help schools become more “sensory friendly” and address the sensory needs of individual children.

      This meeting is an opportunity to find out about the toolkit and give feedback. Your views are important, because they will help to shape the future development of the toolkit and potentially its roll out across the city. Jenny will also explain how this links in with the Parent Sensory Workshops at Ryegate and further development of that service. Please book your place.

      Please note: It will NOT be possible to discuss individual children or address specific grievances at this meeting.
