How Sensory Processing affects Learning: Strategies for the Classroom

This webinar will explore why some children tend to fidget, chew on pencils, become easily distracted, fall of their chair or are uncomfortable wearing the uniform. Sensory processing difficulties can have a huge impact on learning and behaviour. Research has found that 1 in every 6 children have sensory issues that make it hard for them to learn and function in school. Therefore, the focus of the webinar is on practical tips and strategies that can be implemented at a whole class level to help alleviate the impact of sensory processing difficulties on learning within the classroom.
