It can be a real challenge to run a classroom of children with a variety of needs!
The classroom may be a collection of children with attention challenges, physical disabilities, sensory needs, and typically developing kids…all with a variety of personalities and specific needs. All of this while trying to fit in all of the curriculum requirements, special activities, testing, and more. Add in virtual learners, hybrid schedules, teaching from an online platform, creating hands-on opportunities for learning, and meeting the needs of kids during these strange times…all while trying to connect with kids! Teachers today are forging a new path in education. You need tactics that work and you need them NOW.
Every day, school-based occupational therapists collaborate and work right in the classrooms, and that can be a power source of information that can help the whole classroom. But what if you could find strategies THAT WORK for your classroom? That’s where this website comes in.
