Workshop #2 Making Your Classroom Sensational: How to Identify and Address Your Students’ Sensory-Related Needs

Learn about sensory processing to better understand some of the behaviors observed and design your classroom environment and daily routines to maximize students’ performance. Target strategies to meet the needs associated with various sensory processing challenges (i.e. avoiding/seeking/under-responding to the various types of sensory stimuli) and learn about programs like The Alert Program for Self-Regulation to facilitate students’ self-awareness and modulation skills.
