Meeting Sensory Needs in the General Education Classroom: A Researched-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. This course is included with the School-Based OT: Beyond the Basics Webinar Package.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Identify the roles of “brain breaks” and “sensory breaks.”
  2. Determine appropriate modifications based on assessment results for individual students.
  3. Delineate teacher role vs. therapist role.
  4. Identify resources for teaching self-modulation to students.
  5. Select target behaviors most likely to be impacted through this form of intervention based on research results.
