Richard Hirstwood is the founder of and lead consultant for Hirstwood Training.
He is passionate about enabling educators/practitioners to maximise the impact of delivering sensory learning opportunities, in a sensory room or other learning environments, with the resources available to them.
His extensive experience is based on practical knowledge, giving him insight into what works and what doesn’t in multisensory practice. Regular sessions with children and adults with autism and all additional needs in a variety of multisensory and classroom settings enable him to maintain this level of excellent practice.
It made me think of how to change things in our classroom.
The most beneficial aspect of the course was organising the classroom according to the needs and the conditions of the students.
Learning how important it is to have blinds in the classroom and to have toys put away was beneficial.
I found the videos and the use of blackout blinds most helpful.
Just a note about the All Access bundle. I decided to purchase this for all teaching staff during school closures. All of my teaching staff fed back very positively, but it is only now that I am finally completing the courses myself, that I am realising how valuable they really are. To gain knowledge and expertise from an organisation that is so closely linked with our school values and ethos is fantastic! I have always loved your courses, but I am so pleased we have been able to offer these to all teachers! I am sure that it is going to support positive outcomes for our learners.
