Meeting Sensory Needs in the General Education Classroom: A research-based approach
Can students’ sensory needs be met in the general education classroom without frequent trips to the hallway or needing one-on-one time with an aide? Our research shows that a classroom-based approach is not only possible, but highly effective! In this 2-hour webinar, you will find out how to easily implement this approach in your own classroom or in the classrooms of the schools you serve as a therapist.
- Identify the roles of “brain breaks” and “sensory breaks.”
- Determine appropriate modifications based on assessment results for individual students.
- Delineate teacher role vs. therapist role.
- Identify resources for teaching self-modulation to students.
- Select target behaviors most likely to be impacted through this form of intervention based on research results.
