PMLD Sensory Thematic Units
This unit aims to enhance the learners’ understanding of the season of autumn. This understanding is developed and embedded through a wide range of carefully planned and personalised sensory experiences such as poetry, stories, songs, musical experiences and art.
These activities are suggestions only. You can adapt or extend them to suit your learners’ age, cognitive ability and specific needs.
Please note: before beginning an activity, check that all the resources are suitable for your individual learners. For example, some essential oils may not be appropriate for young children and others may have contraindications for learners with complex medical needs, life-threatening conditions and/or epilepsy. It is advisable to consult a trained therapist before using essential oils.
