All behavior has a function. When we look through the sensory processing lens, we find many children with special needs display neurological differences in brain structure and function. They range in severity and can affect a person’s ability to take in, store, process and communicate information. Sensory processing difficulties play a big role in the success of children. When students become overwhelmed by big emotions it is our job to share our calm not to join their chaos.

This workshop provides education about sensory processing, executive function disorder, and functional results of learning disorders combined with practical tips you can use immediately in your work with children.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to describe sensory dysfunction and interception in everyday life of children with special needs.
  • Participants will list traits of executive function disorder in both thinking and doing skills.
  • Participants will choose activities and strategies for learning disorders and ADHD.
  • Participants will identify fun and functional activities to build independence with skills in all settings.
