08 Oct Writing Notes In Class?
Try writing notes to your students instead of using constant verbal cues. Do you have a student who becomes more overwhelmed when you give him verbal directions? Perhaps he has sensory integration challenges and your verbal cues are putting him over the edge. Instead of bombarding him with more auditory signals, try writing your directions onto post-it notes. Place the notes on his desk when you want him to do something. This way, you are still making academic demands on your student, but you are respecting his sensory needs.
