Scholarly articles on classroom management and SI/SPD

Greetings,


I am a long-time educator-music therapist/spec ed teacher. I'm also a grandparent, raising my 6-year-old grandson who lives with SPD. I'm currently working on a research paper SPECIFICALLY on classroom management in general, inclusive classrooms that have students with sensory processing challenges. The purpose is I'm absolutely fed up with general classroom teachers categorically finding excused for not delivering appropriate services/accommodations for said students. Yes, I have a personal stake, hence I'm passionate about this. I hope in the long run, what I share through scholarly writing will benefit those who need advocacy.

Thanks in advance,

CL

504 plan?
by: Anonymous

Greetings,

Do you have a 504 plan in place your son? If it's clear he has sensory needs, push the school to address them and get appropriate accommodations for him. My grandson uses isolation headphones (I provided them), a "sit & fit" chair, a sensory patch (different cloth textures), a "lap buddy" (canvas bag I purchased at the dollar store, filled with dried beans, and sewn shut), as well as receiving "motor time" every hour (going outside and running a lap). Ask for an assessment by the district Occupational Therapist--you'll likely have to bring in the district psychologist & other players. Your son has educational rights, but you much advocate for him!!

Best of luck,

CL

Hi CL,
I do hope that you share your research paper. My 8 yo son is struggling in the public school environment.

My initial struggle was just getting the school to understand he had SPD. Now it is getting them to provide a sensory diet consistently through out the day and assistance with items like writing.

Thank you for your research the public school need to step up and want to understand and help with the issue of children with SPD.
