Collaborating with You...
Getting off on the Right Foot!

We LOVE a google form for collecting data from the Sensory Response Record. Please feel free to use our form... but make a copy first when prompted.
Distance Learning? You may be working closely with a parent to get information for a Sensory Response Record at home. We love this user-friendly form that can be filled out by a parent.
Determining Participation Level
How do you determine participation levels? Here are some quick definitions from the Sensory Learning Kit to help:
1. Extended States: Is your learner agitated? Sleeping? Self-Stimulating?
2. Attention: Is your learner engaged and paying attention?
3. Exploration: Is your learner using their body to explore objects in any way? This can be touching, shaking banging, mouthing, moving cheek against, etc.
4. Function: Is your learner showing you they understand the purpose of an object? Ex: Ring a bell, throw a ball, turn on music player, etc.
When you figure out which level your learner is primarily participating at right now, you know where to start and where to go next. Our team gets excited about helping our learners "graduate" from one level to another. We can't wait to hear how yours do too.
