Think Sensory Not Behaviour Training Programme

Do you work with children displaying challenging behaviours, frequent outbursts, and unpredictable, anxious, struggling to sit still, sensory seeking or difficulty entering school?

Our training will help you understand Sensory Processing and how difficulties can affect a child’s function, motivation and attention.

Using fun practical workshops, the day will equip staff with a greater knowledge and insight to this complex area, whilst providing easy activities/tools to design a sensory routine to implement in the classroom.

Following training each participant will be able to:

  • Recognise potential sensory difficulties and the effect on the child’s behaviour.
  • Utilise user friendly activities and techniques to meet the child’s sensory needs.
  • Design and implement a sensory routine to improve attention control and reduce inappropriate behaviour in the classroom.
  • To provide a happier positive learning environment for all children and staff to benefit their education and maximise their learning ability.

How much for training in school?

£1100 for up to 20 staff

(Reduced rates will be offered for partnership schools)

"Through structure and pushing the boundaries each week we saw a huge change in our son’s relationships with adults and other children. Asking our son about the experience he will tell you that he loves attending Tree Tops because it’s fun and exciting and he can wrestle with the bear in Reception."

"The Think Sensory Not Behaviour Training helped me to think of the underlying cause of many of the behaviours we see in Nursery and lots of positive strategies we can use to prevent them and support individual children.”

"I feel enormously inspired and passionate about implementing strategies to support a wide range of needs for children in our school. I'm excited to work alongside the Tree Tops team!"
