Typical Classroom Sensory-Based Problem Behaviors & Suggested Therapeutic Interventions available at http://yourtherapysource.com/mccaigue.html

School based occupational and physical therapists play a key role in suggesting therapeutic interventions for students with sensory based behaviors.  It is our job to educate teachers, parents and students as to why a child’s behaviors may be sensory based and what sensory strategies can be used to help that child better navigate the educational environment.

  1. Sitting/Poor Work Tolerance
  2. Vision/Attention Related
  3. Oral/Facial Related
  4. Visual Sensitivities
  5. Tactile/Proprioceptive/Personal Space Issues
