Using the same easy-to-use format as her first book, Learn to Move, Move to Learn, Jenny Brack now brings a series of effective sensory-based activities for older school-aged children.
These literacy-rich lesson plans include specially designed curriculum suggestions and underscore how activities can be adapted to meet state and other standards. The book also contains a thorough, up-to-date discussion of sensory integration and sensory processing disorders; assessment and evaluation considerations, including a reproducible Teacher Observation Checklist; evidence-based best-practice strategies; how to integrate lessons into elementary school environments; as well as learning enrichment suggestions.
