Sensory Activity Schedules
Many autistic children and young people perceive and process sensory input in different ways, and this can lead to dysregulation, affecting attention, engagement, and emotional state. Sensory activity schedules provide sensory breaks, supporting the child or young person to regulate so that he or she is in the optimal state for learning, interaction, and participation in daily activities.
This training presentation explores the 
•    what, 
•    when and 
•    where 
of sensory activity schedules, offering suggestions on the types of activities to be included, the frequency and duration of sensory breaks and where they can be carried out. 
Ideas will be given for resources and activities can calm or alert children and young people, depending on individual sensory needs. Home and school contexts will be considered
