The Effective Sensory Integration Session Planbook guides you through the planning phases of an effective session by writing out responses to questions such as:
- What type of sensory input will be provided?
- What preparatory activities or strategies will you use to assist the child to attain and maintain an appropriate level of alertness to participate in the activities?
- List ways you can challenge postural, ocular-motor, oral-motor or bilateral coordination.
- AND MORE!
