Answers to Questions Teachers Ask about Sensory Integration: Forms, Checklists, and Practical Tools for Teachers and Parents

Koomar, Jane; Kranowitz, Carol; Szklut, Stacey; Balzer-Martin, Lynn Author

Image Not Available

In this elegant approach to the often-elusive subject of sensory integration, Carol Kranowitz, M.A. (author of the best-selling book The Out-of-Sync Child) and expert occupational therapists Stacey Szklut, MS, OTR/L, Lynn Balzer-Martin, PhD, OTR, Jane Koomar, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, Elizabeth Haber, MS, OTR/L, and Deanna Iris Sava, MS, OTR/L, have assembled an extensive and easy-to-use set of checklists and other tools that will be invaluable to every teacher (and parent) who has children with sensory processing challenges.

You’ll find tried-and-true instructions for developing fine-motor, “organizing,” and motor-planning skills, and for providing an appropriate “Sensory Diet” that will benefit all your students. Checklists help you identify students who have difficulty processing sensory information. With up to 20% of the students in any given classroom affected by Sensory Processing Disorder, Answers to Questions is an invaluable resource for teachers of preschool through high school.

Winner of Learning magazine's Teachers' Choice Award, this book and the tools within it will help teachers learn how to:

  • Recognize Sensory Processing Disorder
  • Understand how Sensory Processing Disorder may interfere with a child’s motor coordination, muscle tone, fine motor skills, visual perception, and relationships with others
  • Discern a child’s unique pattern of out-of-sync behavior
  • Help a child recover after a meltdown
  • Develop strategies to prevent future meltdowns
  • Approach a child who is simultaneously oversensitive to one kind of stimulation and  undersensitive to another kind
  • Help children identify their own needs for the right amount of sensory stimulation
  • Collaborate with parents, occupational therapists, and other professionals on a child’s behalf
  • Provide a safe, appropriate, “sensory diet” in the classroom that will benefit all students
  • Structure a calm and organized classroom
  • Manage his or her own behavior when a child “pushes those buttons”

Finally, this book will help teachers to always remember that these are good children who are trying their best in a confusing world!

  • What Is Sensory Integration?
