The Social Mind embraces neurodiversity and acknowledges the unique skills, identity and aspirations of every child and adult accessing our resources. We encourage users of our resources to work cooperatively with clients, to strengthen their unique sense of identity, and further develop their capacity to exercise agency in their lives.

Whole Body Listening Larry encourages students to listen with all parts of their brain and body—including their heart—to better learn, play, and work in groups. This colourful poster reminds kids of each body part they can use to listen.

Buying Tip:  The Whole Body Listening Larry Poster provides a fun way to reinforce lessons of the Whole Body Listening Larry storybooks – with the concepts of “listening” with your eyes, your brains, your hearts and entire bodies properly engaged with and aware of the people around us! The books, along with the poster, help to teach self-regulation to your students/children who may be a bit wiggly!

Dimensions: 45.72 cms x 60.96 cms.

Whole Body Listening: A Tool, Not a Rule

When it comes to listening, many children do not fully understand what is expected of them or may not be able to meet the expected demands. Whole body listening is an approach created to help kids learn how to improve their listening by doing certain expected behaviors. But this is a tool – not a rule. We know parts of this concept will be challenging for some of individuals. We continue to encourage these individuals to learn strategies to help them improve their whole body listening when compared to their own previous behavior. The concept of Whole body listening is based on the idea that we can all listen to what is going on around us in a more meaningful manner.

Posters are sent in a poster roll and sent separately to books purchased in the same order.  Posters usually take a little longer to arrive (even when posted at the same time as books, that’s because poster rolls have to be manually sorted as they can not be handled by AusPost’s sorting machines) so don’t worry, your poster(s) will arrive shortly after your books.
