Rachel will provide an explanation of basic intake and processing of sensory intake, and what it looks like when it's successful and when it's not. Participants will develop an understanding of intervention strategies and how to incorporate them in the classroom. A variety of sample environments will be provided for attendee to use as a platform from which to work toward success for their students within their educational environments.
