Relaxation Guide - ideal for people (adults and children) with learning disabilities, ADHD, autism and sensory processing disorders.

January 4, 2019

 

 

From my practice I have noted this is the most successful for adults and children with learning disabilities, ADHD, autism and sensory processing disorders. I used this relaxation technique either at the end of my therapeutic groups or when running mindfulness / relaxation groups. I have hypothesise this to be the most helpful for people with learning disabilities, ADHD, autism and sensory processing disorders  because:

 

- There is no pressure to close your eyes - this can be challenging for some people.

 

- You did not need to visualise a beach, forest etc - people with autism and learning disability can sometimes struggle with visualising something which they have not experience or feel no connection too. 

 

- Do not need to move  body parts - isolating individual muscles can be difficult for some people (muscle progressive). 

 

- You can just be in the space - its a passive relaxation techniques and therefore sometimes just being in the relaxed space (especially in a  group) can be helpful to feel relaxed and be in the moment.
