Franklin’s nervous system craves sensory input. Sensory breaks are therefore crucial to his school day. A sensory break gives him an opportunity to self-regulate which usually involves headstands (his favourite), jumping, running, bouncing on a gym ball etc. This physical release helps him remain calm and focused throughout the day.
