Challenging Behavior in Young Children

by Audrey Rowland MS, MBA

How can we create an accommodating classroom environment for all children to interact successfully? 

In this training we learn in depth about typical sensory development, its impact on classroom interactions and the characteristics of hyper or hypo sensory conditions and sensory related disorders. This training is designed for Infant, Toddler, Pre-School and Pre-K providers in center-based, home-based, or head start programs. When we know more about sensory development and sensory-related disorders we are then are more able to create accommodations and meet the needs of all children in our classroom.
