Welcome to MyBurrow®

Having seen the impact of occupational therapy tools on learning in a clinical environment, it became clear to Special Education teacher Dimitra Baveas that there needed to be a way to incorporate clinical therapy into all learning environments. “I realised that there was a gap in the ability to transfer the teaching and learning from a clinical situation into a classroom situation,” Ms Baveas says. MyBurrow® was developed to aid children and adults struggling because of issues with self-regulation, anxiety and sensory stimulation and is particularly useful for people with social or communication issues, delayed motor skills or trouble with concentration and attention.

MyBurrow® has the potential to help individuals in a wide variety of special and mainstream environments and is particularly useful to promote inclusion. Teaming up with Helena Smith (Education Consultant), MyBurrow® has created a variety of freely accessible resources including behaviour guides, lesson plans, sample support plans and more! 

Today MyBurrow® is used and recommended by:
