KEYNOTE ADDRESS FOR 2017 CONFERENCE
Integrating a Sensory Lifestyle at Home and School, Carol Stock Kranowitz
Some children resist participating in family and school activities or respond in unusual ways to ordinary sensations of touch and movement, sights and sounds. Because of a common disability called Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), they don't behave as we expect – not because they won’t, but because they can’t. And then, they grow up. Therapists, parents, teachers, and other professionals who care for these individuals can deal with their out-of-sync behavior by incorporating “just-right” sensory experiences into their daily life.
