If Johnny's reaction is not life threatening or likely to bring about a seizure or some other misfortune then it may be a better strategy to encourage Johnny to continue and to monitor his reactions over time.

If you can show that a specific behaviour appeared post intervention and that the behaviour: - appears to be linked to the intervention; - does not have an alternate explanation as to its cause other than the desired state of awareness. Paint in a bottle becomes a picture on the wall. Furthermore, I have always found the companies advertising more than willing to help with materials and they usually have them to do with the specific product once they know its intended use. Of course, the staff concerned with the delivery of said sessions would argue that is exactly what we were attempting to do: make the curricular matter relevant to the needs of their Learners by modifying in such ways to make it much more sensory, for example.

Ensure the pupils can explore their environment wherever possible to find out where they are and become familiar with it. However, it is important that all establishments evaluate practice especially new practice for its efficacy.

If she gets it wrong, it may be that the Learner does not understand our questionin and we may need to work on developing this skill. The Learner can then be encouraged to interact with the quilt as it continually develops with new additions continually adding new levels of interest.

Support for the rest of their body is essential so that they do not have to concentrate on anything except what they are supposed to be learning. There is still the widely held opinion that staff in education have very short working days, are on holiday for the most part of any year, and the job is something of a walk in park!
