Sensory Profiles for children - home and school We use an easy online version of the Winnie Dunn Sensory Profile assessments to gather information from parents and teachers and provide a profile of things that the child finds challenging e.g. noisy environment, and things he finds supportive e.g. light dimmers, in his daily life. We prefer to couple this with assessment visits as it should be used alongside observations of the child in their own environments.
Coaching for parents Helps parents make the changes they want to see. They develop an understanding of themselves and their child. This helps them to support their child's development of everyday skills such as using cutlery or going to the toilet. It also helps them to create the life they want.
Collaboration with teachers In mainstream school or a class for children with additional needs. Supports the teacher to get the environment just right for the child. Supports improved access to the curriculum and support for other issues such as dyspraxia. Ensures continuity in programmes to work on specific skills, such as toilet training or handwriting. Individual play and therapy sessions Useful in addition to parent coaching. We can come to you for play and therapy sessions at home with. or without you present. We also offer some kinds of therapy sessions in Howwood and Paisley such as Programmes to help anxiety or anger using a tailored version of the GoZen programme.
Coaching for young adults Helps young adults who are worried about their emotions, behaviour, anxiety, and are struggling to achieve their goals for example in education or work. We will help them to work out what makes them happy and what they want to achieve. We support them to plan and work through the small steps to achieving their goals. We can further this support by collaborating with educators and others in environments which the young person finds challenging. See Therapy for Teenagers
