To aid teachers of students who may have sensory processing difficulties, Crestport Press ( announces the release of a new, 16-page guide, Sensory Integration: Answers for Teachers. Written by Gina Geppert Coleman, Zoe Mailloux, and Susanne Smith Roley, all of whom are affiliated with The Pediatric Therapy Network, this guide answers the following questions:

  • What is sensory integration and how does it support learning and behavior?
  • What is sensory integration dysfunction and how does it affect a student’s ability to learn and pay attention?
  • How are sensory integration problems assessed in a school setting?
  • What can be done to help students with sensory integration concerns?
  • What can teachers do to help a child with dysfunction in sensory integration?

Highlighted in the guide is a one-page checklist, “Teachers Observations of Sensory Integration Dysfunction,” teachers can reproduce and use with each of their students. Also featured is “Try This: Sensory Integration Tips for Teachers,” which provides ideas for teachers of students who have trouble staying seated; planning, initiating or sequencing a multi-step task; paying attention; developing motor skills for writing or playground activities; who seem overly sensitive to sounds, textures, heights, odors, or light within the school setting; or who seem to have difficulties in spatial organization and management of materials.
