This assessment is for children who show challenging behaviours, this can range from aggressive frequent outbursts such as biting, hitting along with unpredictable responses to different environments. This can often be a sign of having underlying sensory processing difficulties. These youngsters may display high levels of anxiety, be easily distressed or appear very unmotivated and difficult to engage. Some children may also be extremely sensory seeking and very difficult to engage for any length of time.
- Sensory Profile-school questionnaire (and caregiver if necessary)
- Nursery observations
- Teacher and staff interview
- Sensory response
If these behaviours are analysed and fully understood it equips staff with knowledge and sensory tools to diminish inappropriate behaviours and promote a more positive calm individual person who will function more effectively in nursery.

Our therapists at Tree Tops are passionate about working with educational staff to grow their knowledge and skills. School staff will be trained and supported when learning to work with children affected by sensory and motor difficulties to integrate the programmes designed for them.
Many children with learning difficulties will have sensory processing difficulties, causing them to struggle with every day experiences like movement and sound. We will assess and design individual programmes and work with teachers on how to implement these into children's routines.
Tree Tops believe all young children benefit from our therapeutic activities and interventions. Whilst we can provide programmes for developmentally delayed children, an integrated approach into the nursery environment ensures no children are overlooked.
