JUST RIGHT! Setting the Foundation for Social and Emotional Learning through Sensory Modulation and More
Social and emotional learning (SEL) is essential to human development and helps create a positive learning environment for all students. Many school districts are establishing systemic, schoolwide approaches to SEL. This course will review how to address SEL with students that have central nervous system disorders and sensory modulation issues through the 3 tiers of Response to Intervention.
Sensory modulation is seen as a component of emotional regulation and social-emotional learning and it is critical for academic and social success. Research shows that sensory modulation is a skill that can be taught. This course will review the evidence supporting instruction in sensory modulation and basic concepts and terminology to be used in this instruction. Participants will practice and learn how to use the lessons from Just Right! A Sensory Modulation Curriculum for K-5 with hands-on activities and video demonstrations.
You will receive a free digital version of the curriculum and will reference it throughout the course. Please make sure to have the LIST of supplies available in order to participate in the HANDS-ON activities!
