Autism Resource Kit

Autism Resource Kit

Whether home-schooling or in the classroom, a child on the autistic spectrum may not be able to truly thrive or express how they feel in an educational environment. Luckily this Autism Resource Kit has a wealth of help for both autistic children, as well as their parents, carers and teachers.

It features over 100 visual communication symbols that can help the child express how they’re feeling and progressing, which makes it all the easier for parents and teachers to make the next step.

Also included is the incredibly helpful book, “Hey, children on the autism spectrum can play too!”, written to support those working or living with children on the autism spectrum and provides great ideas to encourage them to play and interact.

ADHD Classroom & Home Kit

ADHD Classroom and Home Kit

Similar to the Autism Resource Kit mentioned above is the ADHD Classroom & Home Kit. It aims to help children with ADHD “Stop & Think” and gives them pointers and tips on proper communication and social interaction in conversation.

It includes many visual communication symbols and a range of practical tools to support visual and kinaesthetic learners.

It also gives a wealth of resources in helping parents, carers and teachers know how a child is feeling in the classroom and includes the immensely useful book “Supporting ADHD: It’s Not All About Behaviour”, which provides practical ideas and suggestions to support those working or living with ADHD, creating a better understanding of the world from their viewpoint.

Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog

Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog

Perfect for when little ones are in their early developmental stages, Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog can help improve their fine motor skills as they return the chunky, peg-shaped 'quills' within the holes that mark his back!

The learning doesn't end there; Spike's multi-coloured quills lend themselves well to lessons in counting, sorting, and colour identification skills. Toddlers can arrange the quills by warm or cool colours or work on sequences and patterns by varying colours. They can also count the quills with the help of numbers on the hedgehog's back.

Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog is available in many forms, check out our full range here!
