Calming Clothing - an idea to explore

Calming Clothing is a patented Therapeutic Clothing designed to help children with sensory processing disorders such as experienced by children with autism. 

It is also has many benefits for children with: 

 

  • RETT Syndrome 

  • Cerebral Palsy

  • Autism spectrum disorders

  • Anxiety

  • Low muscle tone

There is much anecdotal evidence from parents and occupational therapists that weight can have a quieting effect on a child with a sensory processing disorder. The Brainery, a company based in Geelong VIC., a team of enthusiastic and dedicated people who are passionate about education and learning, declares on their clothing webpage that a child wearing weighted garments may exhibit improved physical awareness and interpersonal communications. 

There are other outlets in Australia for equipment and clothing also. One example is My Diffability Australia.

Riverside ESC has not entered into any arrangement with these companies and does not promote their products or services. The informational may be of assistance to parents and carers of children with disabilities.

  • RESC Administration Office Upgrade

    Dear Parents, Carers and members of the RESC Community,

    I am pleased to officially announce that our Administration Office upgrade will commence on the 11 September 2017.

    From that date access to the school office and front-of-school Disabled Parking bays will be limited by construction activities and hoarding around the work site. We will work with the builder to try to keep that disruption and non-access time to a minimum. Your patience and understanding during this time will be very much appreciated.
