Does your student have trouble tuning in at  circle time, maintaining personal space, or transitioning  smoothly? This webinar will focus on the unique sensory challenges that surface in school. Participants will come away with practical and effective strategies targeted to individual students and the classroom as a whole to help children modulate their behavior and thrive socially.
