Children can be hypersensitive (oversensitive) or hyposensitive (under sensitive) to touch, taste, smell, sound, sight and/or movement. Many children need sensory adaptions in the classroom.
By regulating the amount and intensity of stimulation it helps to keep the nervous system calm, organised and focused. Children can be under-aroused and sluggish one moment and overwhelmed and anxious the next. Meeting sensory needs can include using sensory tools to regulate behaviour or adapting activities to reduce sensory stimulation.
