Treasure Baskets And Beyond Realizing The Potential Of Sensory Rich Play Book Description:

"This accomplished book represents an impressive and important extension of previous writing in the field and is sure to expand practitioners' understanding of the fascinating medium that is the treasure basket." Janet Moyles, Professor Emeritus, Anglia Ruskin University, UK Watching a child play with a Treasure Basket can give a powerful insight into the wonder of children's minds; their developmental levels, interests, likes and dislikes; repeated patterns of behaviour; and even glimpses of a child's personality. This book draws extensively upon observations of children's play as well as contemporary and original research in neuroscience and sensory play, to offer fresh insights into the use and benefits of Treasure Baskets and sensory-rich play. The book demonstrates how babies through to primary school children, including those with special educational needs, can derive rich and meaningful hands-on learning from sensory-rich objects and the wider application of sensory play. Key features of the book: Discovering how sensory play presents opportunities for problem solving and meaning making as well as developing creativity and imagination Understanding the benefits and potential of sensory-rich play and its powerful effect upon brain development and memory Learning about the role of the adult in supporting and maximising sensory-rich play Gaining insights from a range of case studies and activities If you have already witnessed deeply absorbing Treasure Basket play in action and marvelled at children's fascination and focus, then this book helps explain something of the 'behind the scenes' processes in action. For those who have not yet encountered this deceptively complex play, this book whets the appetite, giving a taste of what Treasure Baskets and sensory-rich play have to offer. This timely and empowering book is written for practitioners and students working with babies through to primary-aged children.

Play to Progress Book Description:

For children to develop to their fullest potential, their sensory system - which, in addition to the big five of sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell, includes movement and balance (vestibular), body awareness (proprioception), and internal perception (interoception) - needs to be stimulated from the time they are born. Their senses flourish when they explore their environment by touching new textures, including their food, running, jumping, climbing, and splashing outside - never through screens. As an occupational therapist with a specialty in sensory integration and early childhood development, Allie Ticktin has seen an alarming increase in cases of children who can't sit in circle time or at their desk upright and who are delayed in learning to walk, talk, or socialise, many of whom have been diagnosed with ADHD or sensory processing disorders, in part because these critical systems have been neglected. In the recent past, the sensory system and many developmental skills evolved naturally outside in the garden or on the playground. But with increasing time pressures for both kids and parents, as well as safety concerns, children are often sat in front of screens, without sufficient opportunity to explore and interact with their environment. The good news is that boosting your child's sensory development doesn't take enormous amounts of time or supplies, or any special skills. In Play to Progress, Ticktin discusses the eight sensory systems and how a child uses them, and offers easy, fun activities that will encourage their development so that your little one will be better able to respond to their emotions, build friendships, communicate their needs, and thrive in school. That's the power of sensory play.

Maxi Sensory Play Book Description:

Maxi Sensory Play, Birth - 24 Months is a concise and easy to read Handbook for parents and childcare workers wanting to know... * what a baby is expected to learn and achieve at specific ages across the milestone development spectrum, * what activities parents can play with their baby so their baby learns and achieves particular skills. What is different about Maxi Sensory Play, Birth - 24 Months, is that it includes over 650 sequential learning play activities and has over 60 visual and cognitive stimulus cards which are shown to a baby at the most opportune time, that is, when a baby is ready to learn a particular skill. The monthly dot point list of what skill is expected to be learnt covers gross and fine motor skills, visual development and cognitive learning, hearing and language development and social and emotional development. Age specific tactile activities are also included. Following this dot point list are the play activities which are aligned with a specific milestone. The stimulus cards include, for instance, 4 black and white designs. New borns prefer simple, well ordered, black and white patterns to colour. Varied coloured cards are introduced to a baby when babies a more colour aware. Other examples are depth perception awareness cards, visual tracking, spot the difference, visual discrimination, including graduated size, block/object and outline matching. From Birth - 12 Months the book is divided into monthly age groups. From 12 - 24 Months the book is divided into 12 - 15 Months; 15 - 18 Months and 18 - 24 Months. Neuro-science and child development literature indicates that the sort of learning opportunities a baby is exposed to will greatly influence a baby's learning power. Put simply where there is low input of sensory experience a baby's synapses, or "brain wiring" is slowed down. Conversely, "brain wiring" is strengthened in babies who have been given the opportunity to experience age appropriate play. An early start to this is laying the groundwork for future learning and achieving. Maxi Sensory Play, Birth - 24 Months concise list of monthly developmental milestone achievements and its corresponding activities will help maximise a baby's learning when a baby needs to learn a particular skill.

Sensory Based Relational Art Therapy Approach S BRATA Book Description:

This book bridges art therapy practice and research by presenting sensory-based relational art therapy approach (S-BRATA), a clinically tested framework for working with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that explicitly addresses sensory dysfunction and its impact on impaired attachment. The author shows how art therapy can facilitate attachment while addressing sensory problems that might underlie impaired attachment shifting the focus from the behavioral to the emotional development of the child with autism. The book additionally challenges traditional aspects of art therapy practice, particularly the focus on the relational aspect of the intervention and not the art product. Not restrictive or prescriptive and with the potential to be adapted to other interventions, S-BRATA provides an explicit framework for doing art therapy with children on the spectrum that opens the scope of art therapy practice and encourages flexibility and adaptation. Clinicians, students, and parents alike will benefit from the text’s clear outline for relational development with individuals on the spectrum and its emphasis on the importance of the psycho-emotional health of a child with ASD.
