Behavioural Detective in the Classroom

Many children with different diagnoses experience challenges in the manner in which they process sensory information. (For example, Learning Disabilities, Developmental Coordination Disorder, ADD/ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Cerebral Palsy and Emotional/Behavioural Disorders.)

This introductory course is designed to assist teachers and professionals involved in the educational field learn to support children with behavioural challenges and learning problems. The sensory processing approach assists teachers and professionals in “looking beyond the behaviour” and into the nervous system. It helps with understanding how the child’s behaviour is a manner of coping. This course is designed to assist in evaluating behaviours and learning based on observations that look beyond the label.

Strategies in adapting the environment, altering interaction, and providing appropriate supports for children who have difficulty with processing sensory information, will be provided.

This workshop is designed to assist in evaluating behaviours and learning based on observations that look beyond the label.
