Children with neurodevelopmental disorders including Autism, Dyspraxia/DCD and Attention Deficit and Hperactiviity Disorder may experience challenges with sensory processing and regulation in the classroom. Signs of poor regulation may include children appearing sluggish/zoned out, unable to sit still and focus on the task, or emotional outbursts when challenged by social or learning activities. This webinar will discuss sensory issues for children with neurodevelopmental disorders. In addition, the webinar will provide attendees with a toolkit of regulation friendly strategies to enhance the learning and inclusion of all children not just children with neurodevelopmental disorders.
