I could see than in some of the kids I work with were hypersensitive for some and hypo sensitive for others, I never really realised that they could be mixed. I feel that I new have a much better understanding of some of the kids in my class."
"I loved how thoroughly Jennifer addressed each sensory issue and strategies to help teachers support these children in the classroom. I particularly liked part 3 where Jennifer discussed and gave examples of a number of visuals that would work in the classroom also. This is very beneficial to me as a primary school teacher."
