Using Sensory Integration Strategies to Help Students Focus

This workshop on January 18, 2013 will include a brief overview of the seven sensory systems along with sensory integration strategies that can be utilized in classrooms to increase student engagement and time on task. After this all day workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn a variety of strategies to take back to their classrooms, and leave with a book of resources.
