Wired Differently: A Teacher's Guide to Understanding Sensory Processing Challenges
Preschool is a time of wonder when curiosity, development, and learning intersect. While the new sights, routines, and experiences can make preschool exhilarating, what about children who struggle? Perhaps they exhibit odd behaviors: chewing on clothing, covering their ears, avoiding certain textures, refusing to sit with peers, screaming when frustrated, hitting, kicking, or biting.
Wired Differently will help you to decode what may seem like everyday challenging behaviors. It’s possible that these children are struggling with sensory processing disorder (SPD).
- Differentiate between everyday challenging behaviors, and those that could signify something much more
- Understand what sensory processing disorder (SPD) is and how it can interfere with a child’s learning
- Learn how to include sensory processing strategies as part of a typical classroom routine, and why they’re important for all children
- Effectively communicate with families about SPD behaviors and helpful learning techniques
