Just Right! Setting the Foundation for SEL
Give students or entire classrooms the skill of sensory modulation; create the best foundation for higher learning.
About this Course
Social and emotional learning (SEL) is essential to human development and helps create a positive learning environment for all students. Many school districts are establishing systemic, schoolwide approaches to SEL. This course will review how to address SEL with students that have central nervous system disorders and sensory modulation issues through the 3 tiers of Response to Intervention.
Sensory modulation is seen as a component of emotional regulation and social-emotional learning and it is critical for academic and social success. Research shows that sensory modulation is a skill that can be taught. This course will review the evidence supporting instruction in sensory modulation and basic concepts and terminology to be used in this instruction.
Participants will have the opportunity to practice and learn how to use the lessons from Just Right! A Sensory Modulation Curriculum for K-5 with hands-on activities and video demonstrations. You will receive a free digital version of the curriculum and will reference it throughout the course.
In order to participate in hands-on activities, please make sure you have the following supplies: scissors, glue stick, 2 white paper plates, 1 brass fastener, 1 paper clip, crayons/markers (specifically red, yellow, and green), 1/2 piece of red, yellow, and green construction paper, 1 manila folder and printed handouts (available on the left side of the screen during the course).
