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.
Each point was explained clearly, complemented with pictures/videos and provided enough information without being too lengthy. Easy access to a copy of the audit, alongside easy to follow instructions.
Favourite line of the course, “Movement for many learners is not a choice it is a need”. I will definitely be using this line. Brilliant!
I learned from the whole course.
The most beneficial aspect of the course was to consider clutter on walls and classroom, light, shade, noise.
I discovered how important it is to make sure everything in the class enables the child to fulfil their potential.
