Podcast: The Happy Sensory Corner of Special Ed.

Welcome to ‘The Happy Sensory Corner in Special Ed’ – the podcast where we explore the world of sensory enrichment and environmental enrichment in special education.

We interview experienced special education directors to learn from their successes (and from some of their failures too!) in solving the challenges of teaching students with special needs.

In each episode, we also share practical strategies, sensory enrichment protocols, and evidence-based practices that address specific areas, such as behavior regulation, self-awareness, social skills, learning abstract concepts, hyperactivity, etc.

Reducing Restraints

This is the topic for this quarter: If you have ideas, stories, or this is a big problem in your district we would like to interview you.

See available times for recording an episode

If you want to save yourself for other topics next quarter, we will be exploring developing social skills from the inside out.
