Resource Connection: Sensory Tools

Pathways has a great resource on sensory integration, resources by age, and what to look out for if you have concerns about sensory processing. This is a great follow up resource from our group connection on sensory processing. Talk to your parent educator for more information on integrating all the senses through play! https://pathways.org/topics-of-development/sensory/
