Theoretical Frameworks:
STICKIDS
 aims to incorporate 3 frameworks:
  1. A “Top Down” Cognitive Perspective based on Motor Cognitive Learning and CO-OP Learning frameworks that use cognitive compensation strategies to support children.

  2. Sensory Processing and modulation depicted here as “Sensory Diet and Environmental adaptations”.

  3. A Bottom Up / Neurological Clinical Perspective based on Dr. Jean Ayres clinical and theoretical Sensory Integration framework, depicted here as the “base of the system”.

Utilizes over 125 fun motivating Stickid pictures arranged in easy to use folders of: Motion, Pressure'n Touch, Heavy Work, Suck'n Chew, Retreat, Routines'n Planning, Tips Tools'n Doing, and Clinic Time. Click on picture to enlarge watermarked/copyright protected

Pictures can be selected to suite a variety of settings from tight spaces, to classroom, small group, home, clinic or community.


STICKIDS provides a new exciting self regulation program with Stickid, the Critter meter and the effect icons which give you an indication as to what the activity will do for the child.

You will then see these mini icons when looking at pictures in the folders, and then again on various planners and activity cards. Most activities have several effect icons as the response can vary per child and how the activity is presented.
