Just Right! Teaching Sensory Modulation in Grades K-5

Sensory modulation, defined as the ability to respond appropriately to sensory information and remain at an appropriate level of alertness, is critical for academic and social success. Research shows that modulation is a skill that can be taught. When viewed within a larger educational framework, sensory modulation is seen as a component of emotional regulation and social-emotional learning. This FREE, 1-hour webinar covers the evidence supporting instruction in sensory modulation, basic concepts and terminology to be used in this instruction, and a specific curriculum available to ensure success in this endeavor.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Define sensory modulation and the three major subtypes of Sensory Modulation Disorder (SMD).
  2. Identify where sensory modulation fits within a Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) frame of reference and within the tiers of intervention when using a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework.
  3. Delineate components of the Just Right! curriculum, including materials and preparation, instructional modifications, and access to demonstration videos and student handouts.
  4. Define major terms and concepts used in the Just Right! curriculum to ensure success in student instruction.
