Description:Children with a number of diagnosed special needs, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and Down syndrome – as well as children who have experienced early trauma, those born prematurely and the highly gifted – are likely to have sensory processing challenges. In early childhood classrooms, most will not (yet) have a diagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), but It’s safe to say that nearly all classrooms will include children whose sensory needs define a learning style and necessitate environmental accommodations. These children would benefit from the expertise of an Occupational Therapist (OT), but all teachers can make their classrooms as accessible as possible to students with SPD using strategies for the classroom that will benefit all children. This training will focus on low-tech environmental strategies that will benefit all children and will increase the likelihood of success for children with different learning styles that include sensory, social and communication challenges.
