Born and raised in Devon, Becky Lyddon founded Sensory Spectacle in 2014. Originally from the field of Graphic Design, she was captivated by the autistic sensory world whilst working in a centre in West London that supports children and young people with complex health needs and disabilities.
Throughout the 7 years she worked there, she set up a sensory toy library, qualified as a regional Makaton tutor & trained the staff to support sensory needs of the children. Alongside her work, she completed her Masters degree in Art & Science from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London receiving a distinction for her installations focusing on the autistic sensory world. Her experience and understanding of Sensory Processing Difficulties (SPD) inspired her to educate the public on how people with SPD may experience their surroundings and thus Sensory Spectacle was born.
Sensory Spectacle creates experiential installations to help educate about SPD. Becky designs and builds environments to help society experience for themselves how SPD can impact their daily lives. Becky creates awareness and encourages parents and professionals to empathise.
Becky will be Lead Guest Speaker for Saturday 28th October 2017 session of 'Alphabet 12' which Becky will be presenting a fantastic workshop for attendees of 'Alphabet 12'.
Sensory workshops, resources and support to create a better awareness and understanding of Sensory Processing difficulties.
