If you find a strategy to assist with sensory challenges that works with your students, share it with their parents.

Sensory challenges can be very overwhelming for teachers, professionals, parents, and the child himself.  Finding something that works can be an extremely rewarding experience for everyone involved.  If you have some tricks up your sleeve, be sure to let others know about your successes.  For example, if you got your student to sit down in his seat by first encouraging him to do 10 jumping jacks, let the parents know.  If you got your student to taste a new food during cooking class, share your strategies with others.  It is so important for everyone to work together to improve the quality of life for those affected by autism.
