Understanding our sensory processing ability helps us to understand our likes, dislikes, and the strategies we use to help keep ourselves in a calm, alert state. This calm, alert state is necessary for learning! Knowing how to stay regulated is a life skill.
The Sensory Detective Curriculum is a resource that can be used to enable children to learn and understand this skill. Opening this discussion can help us understand how tensions rise, how bullying happens, and how children can become lonely, isolated, and misunderstood. Each chapter has fun activities for students to not only deepen their understanding, but to apply it to their own classroom.
The Sensory Detective Curriculum enables students to discover sensory processing and how it supports attention, focus, and regulation skills. Learning adventures include:
the neurology of sensory processing,
how sensory processing supports the nervous system to pay attention and focus, and
how emotion is connected to sensory processing and regulation.
Each chapter has fun activities for students to not only deepen their understanding, but to apply this understanding to their own classroom.
