Halloween activities for children with autism (Guest post)

halloween andy 2016-17

Try these great Halloween activities with your students!

As proud sponsors of the National Autistic Society, we are pleased to bring you these fantastic ideas for Halloween activities for children on the autism spectrum. These brilliant ideas come courtesy of Corinna Laurie, Lead Occupational Therapist and Emily Trapp, Specialist Speech and Language Therapist from Helen Allison School.

 

Occupational Therapy Ideas

Face Painting, loud noises, scary characters and scratchy costumes aren’t for everyone, and can be especially unpleasant for children with autism. Here are some ideas for Halloween activities that are enjoyable for everyone.

 

  • T-Shirt decorating: Many children with autism have sensory sensitivities around clothing. Halloween costumes can be scratchy and overwhelming. As a class project why not decorate a comfy T-shirt with a Halloween theme. They are then still being festive, without being uncomfortable.
  • Pumpkin carving: A great Halloween activity but some children with autism may find the mess very “uncomfortable”. Allow students to wear plastic gloves when scooping. Light up with battery candles for a visual delight!
    • Use the innards as a sensory goo bag by placing it in a zip lock bag and letting kids squash away!
  • Dancing worms: Mix together baking soda, vinegar and warm water and add jellied sweet worms. Watch them dance and swirl around

Party time!

Hold a Halloween party for school friends. Many Children will find trick or treating to daunting and so a class party will offer another opportunity to celebrate. In preparation students could bake and decorate cakes, make and distribute invitations, think of games to play e.g.

Mystery box

Halloween game – fill bowls with noodles, jelly, cooked pasta etc. and see who guesses the most correct. If students have sensitivity to certain textures use dry pasta, animal shapes (bats and rats!), real objects (fangs and skulls!) etc.

Frankenstein/Ghost Bowling (helps with co-ordination)

Paint faces/put eyes on cans/toilet rolls, and then stack the scary (okay, more like cute) dudes to see how many you knock down in one shot.

Spider Races (blowing is calming)

All you need for this game is some straws and plastic toy spiders — whichever kid blows their spider across the finish line first wins.

Speech and Language Therapy Ideas

Scary pumpkins/ghosts

Targets: Following instructions/ attention and listening skills/ giving instructions

Give each pupil a body template (e.g. in the form of a pumpkin or ghost). Have several versions of different features e.g. sharp teeth, gold teeth, long teeth. Give pupils instructions for what they should add and see if they can follow the instructions accurately. Reverse roles and see if they can give you instructions. Can they spot your funny mistakes you make?

Costumes

Targets: Understanding and expressing adjectives

Take a picture of pupils in their fancy dress outfits, or use a picture of a scary character. Annotate the picture with lots of describing words. Or write them on post it notes and stick them on the outfits.

Slime

Targets: Joint attention, following instructions, vocabulary

Make slime together. Explore it together and talk about how it feels and looks e.g. wet, squidgy. For more able pupils they could follow the instructions on how to make it.

Halloween jokes

Targets: Non-literal comprehension (double meanings), interacting with peers

Find some suitable Halloween jokes for your class and explore them further before asking the group to adapt them or come up with their own.

Halloween Bingo

Targets: Vocabulary, attention and listening skills

Substitute a traditional bingo card with a Halloween themed one and get the class involved in this fantastic and fun Halloween activity.

Visual supports – anxieties and stranger awareness

Targets: Anxiety

For pupils who are anxious about costumes etc- visually explore the fact that there are familiar people underneath. Use symbols and pictures to demonstrate this point or any other fears.

 

Explore the importance of stranger danger e.g. people will knock on the door in outfits, don’t knock on stranger’s doors without a parent etc.

Introducing Rebecca (Axcis London)

Axcis is continuing to grow as more and more schools hear about us and start using our services. As a result, Axcis London has a new consultant, so if you’re seeking work (or staff) in the Havering, Redbridge, Essex or Newham areas, why not get in touch with Rebecca? Find out a bit more about her here.

About Rebecca

rebecca a photo

Rebecca

I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Recruitment Management and have been working within the education sector since 2009. The majority of my experience has been with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), which has included sourcing staff to support speech and language delays, autism and cerebral palsy. This has been both in mainstream and specialist school settings.

 

I believe that it’s of paramount importance when working with SEND provisions to understand both the role and setting in detail. I can then select staff with not only the most appropriate skills and training, but also the best-suited personality for the provision I am working with. I believe this is important in order to minimise the impact of staff changes both to the students and staff alike.

 

In my spare time, I love travelling and am a little bit of a gym junkie. I also run employability workshops for community projects, aimed at people who have been out of work for a while and people finding it difficult to find work due to English being their second language.

Would you like to work with Rebecca?

Rebecca covers the following areas for Axcis: Havering, Redbridge, Essex and Newham. If you are seeking work (or staff) in these areas, then get in touch with Rebecca today to see how he can help. Or if you’re seeking work in any other area, register online and we will put you in touch with your personal consultant in your local office.

Axcis SEND good news

At Axcis, we are always keen to hear from educational professionals about the fantastic work being done in their schools. Here are just a few we’ve heard from recently:

News from Phill Arrowsmith, Headteacher at Wirral Hospitals’ School, Wirral

As a special school for students struggling with mental health issues, we could almost write your ‘Good news’ newsletter for you with the amount of positive stories we have. The most current and most significant, however, are:

 

  1. On 10th October we held an event, in conjunction with Young Minds, to celebrate World Mental Health day and raise awareness of mental health issues.

  2. We have recently undergone our 3 day assessment for Autism Accreditation status and, although we still await the final verdict, the initial feedback was glowing about the quality of teaching and learning and the support for ASC students.

  3. We have invested significantly in Speech and Language therapy – offering increased assessments for students, in-class support, and training for staff – and this has resulted in huge changes to our support systems, as well as the in-class provision for students with Speech and Language difficulties.

  4. We have recently introduced a Social Thinking programme, primarily aimed at our ASC cohort but also used across the whole school. We have trained our staff and offered training to parents to improve their understanding and to complement the support being given in school.

Nicola from Axcis went along on the 10th October to the Young Minds event and had this to say about it:

It was a really nice afternoon. They had a student reading a poem about her depression which was really good to get the message over to other students about how people actually feel. An ex-student came to talk about his experiences and how the school and teachers had helped him so much. They also had a school band where both students and teachers were singing and playing instruments. They sang lean on me and Count on me (by Bruno Mars). The finale was that they raised a bunting across the stage were all the students had wrote something about what they think about Mental Health. It was a lovely event!

Teachers – could YOU spot a mental health problem in your classroom?

What is SEMH, why is it important, and what do you need to know to spot, and support a child with SEMH in your classroom?

What is SEMH?

In a recent article written for Axcis, Lorraine Petersen OBE tells us:

lorraine peterson obe 2

Lorraine Petersen

The (relatively) new category of social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs replaced the old category of behaviour, emotional and social difficulties (BESD) in the SEND Code of Practice 2015. Many schools used the BESD category for all those pupils who appeared to have any behaviour difficulties from those who were withdrawn to those who had challenging behaviour. Often teachers were unsure of what was triggering the behaviours and so were not able to identify the underlying needs.

 

What does this mean for teachers and front-line staff?

Lorraine also tells us that:

Mental health issues can present in a number of ways, and it is important to distinguish between a mental health problem, disorder and illness. Mental health problems are relatively common and may occur in 30 – 40% of all children during childhood. They will usually be short – term and mild and may arise from a number of different factors. It is these children and young people that we need to be able to identify and put in place intervention strategies to ensure they do not progress to having a more serious mental health disorder or mental health illness, both of which will require diagnosis and support from health professionals.

 

The crucial thing to notice for many teachers and support staff is that it is YOUR responsibility to look out for signs of social, emotional and mental health issues in the classroom, and to liaise with your team to provide support to the individual as appropriate.

What does a mentally unhealthy child look like?

It is important to remember that we are not just looking for “bad behaviour” – we are looking for signs of ANY mental health problem. This can include very quiet/withdrawn behaviour, so it’s important to keep an eye out for that in your classroom, too. Signs of mental ill-health in our children and young people might include, but not be limited to the following:

 

  • Feeling very sad or withdrawn for two or more weeks
  • Seriously trying to harm or kill yourself, or making plans to do so
  • Sudden overwhelming fear for no reason, sometimes with a racing heart or fast breathing
  • Involved in multiple fights, using a weapon, or wanting badly to hurt others
  • Severe, out- of-control behavior that can hurt yourself or others
  • Not eating, throwing up or using laxatives to make yourself lose weight
  • Intensive worries or fears that get in the way of daily activities
  • Extreme difficulty in concentrating or staying still that puts you in physical danger or causes school failure
  • Repeated use of drugs or alcohol
  • Severe mood swings that cause problems in relationships
  • Drastic changes in your behavior or personality

What to do if you think a child you work with is mentally unhealthy

Schools should now have a designated mental health lead, as well as a whole-school policy and approach to working with SEMH. This includes educating children so that they may be aware of their own issues and can seek help if required. However, if a child you work with is displaying signs of a mental health problem, your first point of call should be a discussion with the mental health lead in your school. From there, the issue can be investigated and supported as appropriate.

SEMH Jobs

At Axcis, we work with many schools who require teachers and support staff to work with children who have SEMH issues. You don’t necessarily need specific training to work with these children. In fact, attitude, patience and the ability to provide continuity in a child’s life during difficult times can often be more important than having a glittering CV. At Axcis, we also offer fantastic Mental Health Awareness Training as part of our candidate CPD programme, so we can help to up-skill you in this area should you require it. To see what SEMH jobs we currently have available in your area, why not take a look at our jobs page? Alternatively, you can register in just a few minutes on our website and one of our friendly consultants will get in touch for a no-pressure chat about how we can assist you in your job hunting.

3 Children in every classroom need your help, so don’t delay

So if you are interested in finding out more, don’t delay, get in touch with Axcis today!

How to support Dyspraxia in the classroom

What is Dyspraxia? How can teachers and school support staff provide effective help in the classroom for children with the condition? Find out here.

What is Dyspraxia?

The website “Dyspraxia Kids” tell us that:

Put simply, dyspraxia is when the messages from the brain don’t reach the body’s muscles, or they reach them in a wiggly way, resulting in uncoordinated movements. This becomes most apparent when a child tries to write or participate in sports.

 

There is no cure or miracle treatment for dyspraxia, but kids who have the condition can benefit from hands-on and visual learning techniques, and lots and lots and lots of practice.

7 tips for supporting Dyspraxia in the classroom

Try these ideas for supporting children with Dyspraxia in your classroom:

  1. For handwriting difficulties, try using multi-sensory letter/number formation e.g. sandpaper letters, sky writing, rice trays

    andy sand tray

    Using sensory methods for encouraging letter formation can help children with Dyspraxia

  2. For difficulties dressing and undressing, suggest loose/easy fit clothing and Velcro fastening to parents
  3. For problems with large muscle movements/coordination such as walking in a straight line, running, jumping and catching, encourage the use of balance or wobble boards, walking on the line and hand to hand throwing using bean bags or water-filled balloons
  4. To encourage concentration and engagement, avoid disturbing children when on task, avoid fluorescent lights in the classroom and try to limit distractions such as bright or interactive wall displays
  5. For poor organisational skills, you can try supplying children with a diary, printed times tables, and instructions for activities using sequenced picture cards
  6. To support children who struggle to follow instructions, you can:
    • Ensure that you have the attention of the child before giving instructions
    • Use simple language with visual prompts
    • Allow time for students to process your request
    • Break instructions down into small, manageable sections
  7. You can assist children with poor social skills by role-playing scenarios and exploring concepts such as private and public. Using Social Stories can also help, as can maintaining consistent classroom rules.

Are you looking for a Dyspraxia job?

If you’re seeking a  role supporting children with Dyspraxia in the classroom, why not register with Axcis or check out our jobs pages? We also run a generous refer-a-friend scheme, so if you want to earn up to £250 in shopping vouchers just for helping a friend to find work, why not get in touch with their details today?

8 Great Steps in Becoming an Inspiring Teacher (Guest post)

Contrary to popular belief, being an inspirational teacher is not something that only a few teachers will ever achieve. In fact, it’s something that all teachers can achieve if they put their minds to it. By becoming an inspiration, you can motivate and encourage your students to do great things in their lives, all with the aims of making this world a better place. Today, I’ll explore eight steps you can take on your journey to becoming an inspirational teacher.

jennifer scott

Thanks to Jennifer Scott for this guest post

Become a Role Model

I quickly found that students are very quick to dismiss something if they have no proof. It’s like telling someone the dangers of smoking while smoking yourself.

 

They’re simply not going to listen to you. A very basic example would be trying to teach your children to have good handwriting. If you don’t have legible writing, your students won’t.

 

Melisa C. Cross, a private tutor and a webmaster for Best Australian Writers, continues;

“Always remember the age-old saying of you practice what you preach. This is a great way to build habits as you and your students can work together to motivate and inspire each other.”

Put Your Students First

When it comes to teaching, the students are the stars of the show. When I began my teaching career, I quickly noticed that standing in front of a whiteboard and talking while the students took notes was the most ineffective method. Students quickly become bored and restless.

 

Instead, I become more of a class supervisor, and after teaching a subject, I would even get some students to come up and teach the class, recalling what they knew, only really correcting them if they were wrong or needed help.

Build Relationships with Your Students

I honestly don’t understand why there needs to be a teacher-student divide. At the end of the day, you’re going to be spending most of your time with these children on a daily basis. Why not build a relationship with them?

 

Get to know their dreams, their aspirations, what food they like and what their favourite colour is. Once you start caring about your students as individuals, rather than a class, they’ll have so much more respect for you.

Jeffery L. Kern, a teacher and content creator for Top Canadian Writers, explains;

“There are so many ways in which you can build a relationship with your students. Even just a quick ‘how are you’ to everyone in the morning and a little talk about their day so far can help to build massive amounts of respect that will reflect in your student’s response to your lessons.”

Welcome Your Students into Class

Have you ever wondered why hotels, restaurants and other hospitality places have people to greet you as you arrive at the door? It’s because the human spirit desires to be welcomed and it makes you feel so much more comfortable, even if you’re entering a place you go to every day.

 

When my class starts, I stand by the front of my door and welcome every student individually. I either shake their hand, give them a high-five or even just say hello! By starting your lessons off in a positive way, you can be sure that you’re going to have a positive lesson.

Dream Big

If you’ve got tests, exams or even inter-class sports day, aim for your class to be the best. If you don’t aim for 100%, you won’t get 100%. I love to drive up the passion for certain subjects in my classes.

 

Recently, we had a test that my school wanted to carry out to see how well the students were doing at maths. I motivated my class saying that every student was capable of achieving 100% and I believed in them. We achieved 96% pass rate, far higher than any other class in the school.

Encourage Human Interaction

A lot has changed since we’ve been in school. There’s now a huge overflow of smart devices, phones and digital gadgets. It’s also vital to remember that being a kid is hard work. Everything that’s said or done on social media can cause a backlash and becomes a breeding ground for things like cyber bullying.

 

Instead, encourage your students to turn off their smartphones in your lessons and actually communicate with one another in a human way. This can help your lessons run a lot more smoothly and can even benefit the children outside the classroom.

Remember the Children Are Human

Hand in hand with all the considerations above, remember that your students are human beings. If one of your students look said, just ask if they’re okay.

 

That doesn’t mean you have to point them out in front of the class. You could always wait until the class starts their work to have a little chat as you’re walking around to see how everyone is getting on. Be a human and be there for your students. You never know whose life you’re going to change.

Look After Yourself

By far the most important step on this list, it’s vital that you look after yourself. This means exercising, socialising, taking time out and minimising those stress levels. If you’re not healthy both physically and mentally, this is going to rub off on your class.

Introducing… Samantha (Axcis Midlands)

Axcis is continuing to grow as more and more schools hear about us and start using our services. As a result, Axcis Midlands has a new consultant, so if you’re seeking work (or staff) in the Midlands area, why not get in touch with Samantha? Find out a bit more about her here.

About Samantha

Samantha Wilkins, Axcis Midlands

I am a qualified teacher and have worked with students who have a range of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) since 2009, including learners with autism (ASC) and social, emotional and mental health issues (SEMH). I also have a high functioning child on the autism spectrum myself, so can appreciate first hand the importance of having appropriate staff for supporting his education.

 

During my time in the profession, I have undertaken training in Team Teach, PECs, Makaton and TEACCH. I feel that this background puts me in an excellent position to understand the schools I work with, and to select well skilled and qualified staff for them.

 

I believe that all children deserve the very best start to life, and those with SEND in particular require consistently outstanding education and care. I am passionate about ensuring that the schools I work with receive exactly that.

 

 

In my spare time, I enjoy meeting new people, and have been a governor at a primary school. I also work with various ASC charities and parent support groups, promoting awareness of autism within the classroom and wider community. I feel that this is extremely important if we are to build a supportive and tolerant future for our young people with SEND.

 

Would you like to work with Samantha?

Samantha covers the Midlands area for Axcis. If you are seeking work (or staff) in this location, then get in touch with Samantha today to see how she can help. Or if you’re seeking work in any other area, register online and we will put you in touch with your personal consultant in your local office.

WIN! This useful ADHD book in the Axcis October Giveaway

In support of ADHD Awareness month, the Axcis October Giveaway is to win a copy of the book “Helping Kids and Teens with ADHD in School”. Find out more about ADHD and how you can enter our FREE draw to win a copy of this useful SEND resource here.

ADHD – what is it? 

The NHS tell us that:

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a group of behavioural symptoms that include inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.

Symptoms of ADHD can be categorised into two types of behavioural problems.

These categories are:
  • inattentiveness
  • hyperactivity and impulsiveness

 

Most people with ADHD have problems that fall into both these categories, but this isn’t always the case.

 

For example, some people with the condition may have problems with inattentiveness, but not with hyperactivity or impulsiveness. This form of ADHD is also known as attention deficit disorder (ADD). ADD can sometimes go unnoticed because the symptoms may be less obvious.

 

Symptoms in children and teenagers

The symptoms of ADHD in children and teenagers are well defined, and they’re usually noticeable before the age of six. They occur in more than one situation, such as at home and at school.

 

The main signs of each behavioural problem are detailed below.

 

Inattentiveness

The main signs of inattentiveness are:

  • having a short attention span and being easily distracted
  • making careless mistakes – for example, in schoolwork
  • appearing forgetful or losing things
  • being unable to stick at tasks that are tedious or time-consuming
  • appearing to be unable to listen to or carry out instructions
  • constantly changing activity or task
  • having difficulty organising tasks
Hyperactivity and impulsiveness

The main signs of hyperactivity and impulsiveness are:

  • being unable to sit still, especially in calm or quiet surroundings
  • constantly fidgeting
  • being unable to concentrate on tasks
  • excessive physical movement
  • excessive talking
  • being unable to wait their turn
  • acting without thinking
  • interrupting conversations
  • little or no sense of danger

 

These symptoms can cause significant problems in a child’s life, such as underachievement at school, poor social interaction with other children and adults, and problems with discipline.

WIN! A copy of Helping Kids and Teens with ADHD in School

Using tried-and-tested strategies this fully-photocopiable book will help you to work collaboratively with pupils to learn, test strategies, set goals and develop support plans around individual needs. If you can’t wait to see if you’ve won a copy, you can always buy one today at SEN Books!
