Using the Sensory Garden as a Tool to Enhance the Educational Development and Social Interaction of Children with Special Needs
Hussein, Hazreena
Support for Learning, v25 n1 p25-31 Feb 2010
This study summarises the findings based on two case study sensory gardens in the United Kingdom, in terms of the educational development and social interaction of children with special needs and the staff who care for them. The aim was to observe and record the users' behaviour when engaging with features in the sensory garden. The data collection included interviews with teachers and therapists, and behavioural observation, which was used in conjunction with affordance theory. The study was supported with a few noteworthy incidents that the author recorded as anecdotal evidence. A selection of photographs was chosen to illustrate these incidents. (Contains 3 figures.)
