Hi there friends,
This week I want to share the positive impact supporting your students’ sensory needs can have on your classroom. I am going to answer some of the frequently asked questions I receive in reference to the how and why of creating an effective sensory friendly classroom.
Every student is unique. They have distinctive personalities, learning styles, preferences, and obstacles that they face. In order to reach ALL of our students and truly expose them to the curriculum, we must take into account each student’s individual needs. Many of those students sitting in our classrooms right now (with or WITHOUT IEPs or 504s) could benefit from sensory tools.
