About the instructor
very informative and useful in the classroom!
Excellent course that I recommend to colleagues, friends and family (as well as parents on the playground) really informative, broken down into simple steps to really help learning and understanding. I particularly like all the videos and huge thanks to Mr J and his mum for giving a true reflection on the impact the sensory ladders provided to their lives!
Thank you so much for providing this course free of charge. Its provided lots of food for thought for how we can apply it within schools.
Very interesting course. Looking forward to trying sensory ladders in school. Thank you.
needed to be more video footage of it used with inderviduals and how they found it ,the constant talking was sending me to sleep
It was a good webinar to help me see how perhaps Sensory Ladders might fit in with other strategies I am aware of or currently use (e.g. Zones of Regulation, 5-Point Scale, Sensory Diet etc)
Thank you for making this free, accessible and informative.
Excellent course, everything you need to get started on supporting the making of sensory ladders
First time experiencing sensory ladders, lots of useful information with examples of practical applications given
As a newly qualified OT I have found this course very interesting and extremely useful.
as an OT student, this course will be of great benefit to me in my future career
This has been great and has helped me to understand the benefit of Sensory ladders and how to us them. The webinar, resources, personal feedback and talk from Liz has made this training one of the best sessions I have attended. I will be completing my own sensory ladder and will also share with my team. Thank you xx
Thank you Kath for such a valuable resource and the tools you have shared. Working with adults who have a diagnosis of autism, I can see how useful this will be for me as a therapist to create a shared language and understanding to support people in their daily lives. My first attempts have had some really good results. Please continue to support the therapist community, your work is so needed.
Thank you very much for sharing this valuable resource Kath. I particularly liked the idea of using a mat and soft toys as a tool as even the older kids can relate as many enjoy having soft toys. The examples from the young man and his Mum brought this tool to life and helped me to relate how it can be adapted with different client groups. Thank you to Liz Brown for sharing her inspiring stories. I look froward to using the sensory ladders.
Very thorough and clear presentation Kath. Thank you so much for this valuable information. I have been successfully sharing this information now with families, who very much appreciate your work.
