Developing Self-Regulation with Sensory-Based Strategies
Sensory-based strategies are techniques that increase or decrease sensory input to help pupils to focus and learn. They are particularly useful when working with children impacted by sensory-processing difficulties arising from trauma, ADHD, Autism and other neurodevelopmental conditions. This five-part webinar series is designed specifically for teachers and Special Needs Assistants (SNAs) seeking to enhance their understanding and application of sensory-based strategies to support regulation in educational settings. The series will delve into the world of sensory processing and provide practical tools to create an inclusive and harmonious learning environment.

Bio – Lucy Mannion, Director of TINT Education
With a wealth of experience as both a teacher and a senior leader in therapeutic education settings, Lucy has made a significant impact in supporting children and young people with sensory processing difficulties arising from trauma, ADHD, autism, and other neurodevelopmental conditions. Lucy's commitment to ongoing professional growth led her to pursue postgraduate studies in psychology and psychotherapy, gaining additional knowledge that has enriched her teaching practice, equipping her with a comprehensive understanding of the underlying psychological factors that influence pupils’ behaviour and wellbeing.
Throughout her career, Lucy has collaborated closely with occupational therapists and other clinicians, recognising the value of a multidisciplinary approach in promoting optimal outcomes for young learners. Her experience in working within a multidisciplinary team has provided her with a deep understanding of the complexities of sensory processing difficulties and has enabled her to develop effective strategies to support pupils in their regulation and learning.
As the Director of TINT Education, Lucy strives to bridge the gap between psychological/therapeutic theory and practical application in education environments, providing training and consultancy services to schools and professionals seeking to enhance their understanding of trauma-informed, neuroinclusive practice and implementation of associated strategies.
