Yay! It's summer! We've probably had ONE of the most difficult years working in schools but we did it!!! We all need a break but, if you're like me, you're always thinking about how to address some issues for the next school year.
Did you also see an increase in sensory processing needs, emotional regulation needs, and an overall delay in skills?
Sensory and emotional skills are strongly connected and we need ALL HANDS ON DECK!
I will be discussing the "OTs Role in Social and Emotional Learning" and how we can collaborate and address these issues during my course at the Back to School Conference in August. However, my good friend, Jaime Spencer, and I have been chatting a LOT about these issues. We decided to create a sneak peek FREE webinar on our roles in addressing these issues!
If you'd like to watch the video we made - you can sign up by clicking on the button below:
It's on-demand, and FREE of charge. When you sign up, you'll also receive an email with the handouts.
KEY POINTS from the webinar:
How do we know if the student is having an issue with sensory, behavior, or emotional regulation? If we knew, we would know how to help, right? Well, we know it's not that easy...but this is why you will learn about the sensory and emotional connection!
How do we help the student, classroom, and teacher/staff manage the increase in needs? We need to do something global to support as many people as possible! We provide lots of strategies for collaboration and how to educate students about their own sensory needs.
Don't forget that Just Right! A Sensory Modulation Curriculum can be used to teach WHOLE classrooms, small groups, or individuals about sensory modulation and strategies they can use to manage emotional and sensory regulation. It is available to purchase as a DIGITAL, hard copy book, or combo package! Use the coupon code OTSEL20 for 20% off!
MOST IMPORTANTLY...don't get overwhelmed! You are most likely already addressing social and emotional learning, but the terms and language may be different. I'm a huge advocate for taking ONE STEP AT A TIME and I'm here to help!
