Do you have students on your caseload that have a sensory processing disorder? Are you struggling with how to work with these students, so your sessions are productive?
Many SLPs serve students in the clinic and school settings that have sensory integration needs. It can be challenging to know how to intervene when a child isn’t paying attention, having constant movement, putting things in their mouths and struggling to get settled to attend to the therapy materials.
