Just Right! Sensory Modulation Curriculum With Hands-On Interventions for Classrooms and Clinics

This course reviews the evidence supporting instruction in sensory modulation and basic concepts and terminology used in this instruction. In this 3-hour webinar, participants have the opportunity to practice and learn how to use the lessons from Just Right! A Sensory Modulation Curriculum for K-5 with hands-on activities, make-it/take-it projects, and video demonstrations. This course references the Curriculum throughout and includes access to the digital version.
