Creating Sensory Smart and Trauma Informed Classrooms

Sensory regulation is the ability to perceive and respond to the environment with the appropriate level of alertness. For some students it can be quite challenging to match the level of energy in their body with the task at hand. When a student’s level of arousal runs too low they may seem disinterested, clumsy or miss social cues. When a student’s level of arousal runs too high they may be easily distracted, have trouble focusing attention or may be fidgety in class. The impact of trauma can complicate this experience even further. This workshop is designed to educate, empower and to provide clear strategies to support our students.

  1. Learn the neuroscience of regulation and trauma and its impact on our students
  2. Explore the difference between behavior versus sensory needs.
  3. Develop a plan to create a sensory and trauma informed classroom for you and your students.
  4. Explore hands on tools and strategies to promote regulation, relationships and learning
