With personal insights from participants on the spectrum, we’ll look at the Challenge Course experience through the lens of Sensory Integration. We’ll define neurodiversity, explore with personal and practical examples how sensory driven behaviors communicate, identify strategies to manage individuals and groups, and empower not just better teaching practice, but better learning and self-advocacy. Everyone grows by choosing challenge.

Learning Objectives

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