Recently someone asked about bereavement and PMLD so I have updated my bereavement slideshow.
Lots of ideas are transferable eg staff member leaving
Ideas can be differentiated easily
Some are just sensory ideas you can adapt for other subjects
As I've gone along I've also saved articles, ideas, collated lists of book, song and poem ideas
The PowerPoint is a collection in one place of where to go for help, and practical ideas of things I have done.
There is an activity list too.
Mostly pictures because your time is precious.
Hopefully I will have saved people loads and loads of time collating this.
It is taken from here, internet and personal experience and has lots of practical, creative ideas.
When people recommend eg, books , I add it to my lists
Apologies if I've missed anyone's permission.
Thank you
I am a special ed teacher and complementary therapist working from home running Willows Sensory Service.

Love Basingstoke


Clare recently celebrated her 43rd birthday 💜

She has always been a trailblazer having been one of the first people to be diagnosed with Rett Syndrome in the UK.

She was also the first person to have spinal surgery when she was 9 years old which was a much different operation than it is today.

She has overcome a number of very serious health issues in her 43 years, in spite of all the odds being against her, showing huge resilience and strength 😍

Her mum, Yvonne Milne MBE founded the original Rett Syndrome Association in the UK (now Rett UK) and like we always say the most gargantuan efforts can always be traced back to one much loved soul.

Clare, so much good stuff has happened because of you, we wish you many more birthdays 💜


I walk my neighbour’s dog once a week, yesterday she gave me this . She has made this twiddle mitt herself.
Great for sensory exploration and losing yourself in the moment.

Willows Sensory Service

Willows Sensory Service is based in Shirley, Solihull. It is relevant to anyone working or living with or who knows someone with PMLD or SLD. I work for myself, a private business and people tend to book individually planned sessions. These usually include sensory activities, sensory songs, sensory stories and often reflexology or massage.

I taught in Special Education for 12 years before setting up Willows Sensory Service. I am also a trained complimentary therapist.

I have a large sensory room here (a converted garage) where sessions take place or you can just hire the room.

For any further information email me on [email protected]
