ASD Teacher Shares Sensory Videos With Her Students

Mum of four Angela is a primary school teacher who specialises in teaching children with Autism. It is a total vocation to her as her own son has Autism. Angela understands how challenging the last couple of weeks have been for parents, but particularly for those who have children on the spectrum. Children for whom familiarity and routine are great comforts and essential for their development and general well-being.

Angela recently set up her Instagram page and has been sharing helpful resources and videos. Some of these videos are sensory videos that she has been sending to her students. Whether it's blowing bubbles, singing a song or performing a puppet show - Angela's followers have adored her content. Many of her followers have children with special needs and the way she speaks and demonstrates her lessons have been a great comfort to their children.

" I got a lovely message from a parent in my class, when her child watched the video I sent them, the child said “more Angela” that might not mean much, but this child has been non verbal and is only emerging verbal now, so that is great news and it made my day "
