These resources are suitable for those who are mobile with behavioural and/or sensory difficulties. 

We call these children  and young people our Leaping Leopards. They tend to be mobile and active and can be seeking sensory inputs including movement and deep pressure. They may have difficulties with concentration and needs lots of activity to feel good. They include some of our children with Autism, ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorders.

We have put together a list of external resources, information, ideas and original videos suitable for Leaping Leopards and their families to do at home.
