21LC 10 008 - Communicating through sensory play in the primary classroom

Verbal communication is often considered the most importance form of communication in the classroom. However, for many children, other forms of communication are more suited to their current abilities and learning styles.

· Reviewing how children can engage with the primary school curriculum through sensory play

· Strategies and ideas for sensory engagement

Objectives:

· Participants will have a greater understanding of the foundational aspects of sensory processing and integration

· Participants will develop strategies and tools to help children develop communication and expression through sensory activities

· Participants will have gained knowledge of a number of practical and achievable strategies to help children engage with the primary school curriculum through sensory activities.
