In this webinar Diana offers a unique opportunity to see and hear an assistant school superintendent, a school principal, RtI team leader, several classroom teachers, a PE teacher, music therapist, occupational therapist AND parent collaborate to implement Response to Intervention (RTI) with sensory strategies. The Sensory Processing Measure (SPM) a well-researched, statistically sound assessment tool is threaded throughout to assist in developing sensory strategies for all.
You will hear how collaboration between all who work with students including in the cafeteria, on the bus, on the playground, in the principal's office and even in outpatient clinics supports the principles of RtI for students in general education as well as those with autism.
A student with autism, his mother, teachers, therapists and a playground are highlighted, meeting the sensory needs of all students.
*Ten Ways to Support Pre-Teens and Teens Using Sensory Processing Strategies
In this webinar, Diana calls a "movement break" where she asks the participants to engage in age appropriate teen movement activities including the Elastablast and Chair Balls to demonstrate 'Bouncing on the Ball', 'Belly on the Ball', 'Partner Balance on the Ball', 'On Top of the World', and 'Floppy on the Ball.'
This webinar provides insight into how the structural changes in the brain as well as hormones impact emotions and judgment. Age appropriate strategies (based on sensory integration and sensory processing) are presented to make learning more accessible.
