Sensory integration refers to how people process the sensations coming from within the body and from the external environment. For a child who has sensory problems, clothing can feel like sandpaper and walking on an unstable surface can feel like bungee jumping. Classrooms, especially, are environments that can create sensory overload.
On our show, Lindsey will address ways in which adults can create sensory friendly classrooms to help children with sensory dysfunction. Sensory friendly classrooms are also beneficial for other types of learners in the class, so you won't want to miss this interview!
