Implementing Sensory Strategies in the Classroom

Implementing Sensory Strategies in the Classroom

Britt Collins:  I want to welcome and thank you for joining us for our presentation today.  If you have any questions throughout the presentation, please feel free to type them in the box and I will answer them as they come up or if you want to wait until the end, I can answer them then as well. 

I wanted to start off with some SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) facts.  I did a presentation last month on sensory strategies in the home and went through a lot of the SPD subtypes on OccupationalTherapy.com.  If you have any questions or you want to know more information about those, you can view that in the course library.  Today we are going to jump right into treatment strategies after we review these.
