School Environment Sensory Checklist
Creating Optimal Learning Environments for ALL children
Did you know that approximately 1 out of every 6 children struggle with sensory-based learning issues?
If you have a class of 30 students, that means there could be as many as 5 KIDS IN YOUR CLASS who are not engaged, not focused and not keeping up with the rest of the class group because the sensory demands of the classroom affect them.
You probably know which ones they are. They fidget, they’re distracted, they can’t focus on simple instructions, right? They disrupt the whole class and take you away from the task of teaching.
