Sensory Activity

At Quest the pupils have been exploring the sensory tent and light wall. Children with Autism may experience differences in the way their bodies process sensory stimulation which can result in them seeking out or avoiding sensory experience or may cause them to become overwhelmed or agitated in environments which may be challenging for them. Ensuring pupils have a balanced sensory diet consists of many types of activities that target various sensory systems in order to calm, alert, provide distraction, promote attention, self-organisation and regulation.
