Thanks Rachel. I used your points/ideas , and Alexander’s) in d/w the key worker today and we started to talk about them using high need funding that they accessed for him to source some new resources. He is definitely a sensory seeker – loves spinning ( I recommended a spinning chair as his dad was so nauseous with spinning him round constantly and that went down well!) , still mouthing (and they have tried various chewy tubes but he prefers gravel (which he will swallow), feathers etc), went through a phase of throwing things down the stairs (just to enjoy watching it happen I think), will climb out of any open window – needs a lot of supervision at home.
