sensory modulation- disabilty in prison settings

Post by JemmaSa » Thu May 07, 2020 7:15 pm

Hi, I work with adolescents and adults with intellectual disabilities and / or on the ASD (in addition to mental health diagnoses, trauma and substance use), who are in custodial settings (prison, declared places).
I'm wondering if anyone has any tools / resources which might be helpful to review in supporting sensory modulation?
My challenge is the significant impact of their disabilities on building their own understanding, the very high risk of suicide and self-harm, and any items needing to be incredibly safe (unlikely to be modified to cause harm).
Any guidance would be much appreciated.
Thank you!
