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. This course is also available in an OT webinar package.
