Take a look at the Challenge Course experience through the lens of Sensory Integration vocabulary and personal insights of an autistic participant. Knowledge of sensory driven behaviors enable us to better interpret the ways in which behavior IS communication and find strategies to manage individuals and groups. Everyone grows by choosing challenge.

Learning Objectives:

-Identify the vocabulary and behaviors in Sensory Integration
-Explore how this knowledge creates more effective facilitation with special needs participants
-Discover how this knowledge empowers facilitators and participants to be more inclusive
