Sensory Wise – More Smiles, Less Stress, Better Support
A new immersive sensory experience, which can help people to understand more about some of the sensory difficulties faced by autistic people has now been launched in the UK. You may have seen information about this from BBC England social media and the Daily Mail Online. The Autism Reality Experience – a hands-on training course – can particularly help those working with individuals on the autism spectrum to understand more about acute sensitivities to light, sound and other things in the everyday environment that can overload those in their care. The Autism Reality Experience, invented by Experience Training Ltd’s Managing Director Glenn Knight, will be available UK-wide via a mobile simulator unit. The experience requires the user to attempt a series of tasks whilst being subjected to a range of effects designed to overload their sensory systems. Experience Training Ltd are now offering structured training sessions on the Autism Reality Experience to organisations across the UK who employ staff that work directly or indirectly with autistic people. This includes care and nursing homes, day centres, hospitals, hospices, local authorities, prisons, universities and the retail sector. The company’s national network of trainers will also be making the Autism Reality Experience available to carers and family members of autistic people across the UK. We recently launched the ‘Mobile’ Autism Reality Experience which is specifically for people to improve their understanding. When an autistic person is diagnosed we really need to support them by giving people around them a true understanding and although there are some amazing training courses available, it is very rare that they access them. The ARE is unlike any training course and actually gives us a first-hand insight into living with the condition.
