A free e-book to support the webinars and workshops in The PDA Space Portal  by Nathalie Shek (OT, Helping Kids Shine) and Dan & Kay Aldred (teachers).

This e-booklet provides a brief overview of the NINE different sensory systems  are and shares some ideas of how we can best support our children and young people to understand their senses and the best ways of regulating their mind and bodies.

It provides a simple explanation of the Polyvagal Theory and shares some of Dan and Kay Aldred's ideas from their new book  'Embodied Education:Creating Safe Space for Learning, Facilitating and Sharing', to help become a 'space holder' for your children or those you are supporting and the importance of feeling connected.


We need to support our children to understand the ways in which their body, mind and sensory systems all work together so they can feel embodied.

As part of the LEANS Community impact project, the LEANS team has challenged the public to set up community-led venues for interested people to meet one another, talk about the LEANS educational resources, and consider wider issues around neurodiversity and education. I have set up a Discord group called 'NICER' to support this and as a space to discuss Neurodivergent Inclusive Collaborative Education Routes and share ways to be NICER: promoting understanding, compassion, empathy to meet the needs of all learners.
