WHAT IS THE WORKSHOP ABOUT?

The aim of this workshop is to help teachers develop sensitivity to the experiences and needs of each student in the classroom.

What do children experience and need in the classroom? What influences their ability to focus? What role does the environment play? What does it look like when you look at the world through their eyes?

In this workshop, you will have guided opportunities to imagine the sensations and obstacles that children face on daily basis so that your practice deepens. You will learn what it is like as they work to develop concentration, learn and grow in an environment that may be difficult for them. You will discover ways to adapt your current classroom to support the growth and positive experience for every child. By every child, we mean not only children with special needs, but also children with the higher sensitivity that accompanies the gifted. During the QA session, you will also have the opportunity to ask Amy your own questions.

WHAT WILL WE FOCUS ON?

WHAT DID WE FOCUS ON?

  • Perception and sensitivity
    During the workshop we will develop sensitivity to the experience of every student in your class. You will learn how children may experience things and what their inner perspective may be.
  • Focus development
    We will explore the sensations and obstacles children face when working on developing concentration. We will talk about ways you can protect children's emerging ability to focus and learn how to use them.
  • Sensory overload
    We will consider what in the environment affects children's sensory perception. We will consider all the senses and explore how sensory overload may be experienced and what it means for us and for children.
  • Specific adaptations
    We will look at how to offer adaptations so that every child is successful. Depending on the individual child, different adjustments are necessary. Keeping an open mind about what will ease the way for your students is important.
  • Sensory Profile
    We will discover that even the teacher has some senses that are more sensitive than others and discuss how this can impact the classroom environment.
  • QA
    There will be time to ask questions related to special needs in the classroom.
