Forces Unite: Sensory Solutions to Managing Behavior

Students with sensory processing issues or disabilities related to sensory processing are constantly bombarded with sensory stimuli throughout the day, during school hours, and at home. Sensory processing plays a critical role in self-regulation and in how children function, interact, and learn at school, so it can be difficult to separate emotional regulation issues from sensory processing concerns, as they often connect. Children who have functional sensory processing skills are able to take in sensory information, filter out what’s irrelevant, and stay relatively calm and self-regulated. Learn how sensory processing difficulties can lead to unwanted behavior in children. Participants will discuss and explore examples of these behaviors and learn possible solutions for them.

Note: This training is intended to build the capacity of district/charter school teachers and staff who work with students with complex needs. All participants must have an email address associated with a Region One district or charter school. All participants will be automatically placed on the waitlist pending verification that they meet one of the intended audience criteria.
