Sensory and Physical needs

Supporting your child's sensory and physical needs at home


Allow children to use a word processer to complete some written tasks. If they can’t type, encourage them to learn, so that they are able to use a Word Processer with more speed and fluency.

Offer routines and structure

Create a quiet space for them to learn with no distractions.

Give them something to fiddle with whilst you are talking to them or you want them to focus. It can also be helpful to let them move around whilst they listen.

Ask them to do one task at a time

Provide checklists or visual timetables to support organisation.

Use timers to help with time management and build in frequent movement breaks.

Play lots of games with your child to encourage social skills, such as taking turns and winning and losing.

Provide physical activities to get your child moving

Help your children develop their fine and gross motor skills and core stability
