How can MPT help Neurodivergent children? 

The Muddy Puddle Teacher is the new way to learn outdoors, but how does it help neurodivergent children?

Well, look at it this way.  State schools, in particular, are tackling many issues regarding making their classrooms more inclusive due to time, lack of training, class sizes, money and resources. So they think….but actually there is a tiny little, cheap and affordable way we could be more inclusive: by simply teaching more lessons in active ways, outdoors.

The outdoors only promotes active, open-ended learning opportunities due to the nature of the space and the added value of weather.  This is a perfect platform for those children who are neurodivergent and flourish in active and creative lesson formats.  Moving makes us all feel good; again, this is beneficial not only for your neurodivergent children but also for all children.

Furthermore, the outdoor space also adds an element of space and freedom to explore, which can be very reassuring, calming, and relaxing for many children to feel comfortable learning.  Plus, the sensory benefits of the outdoor space are compelling for children who need to self-regulate or are over or under-sensitive.

If you would like to learn more about making your classroom more inclusive for SEND, please splash this way.
