Did you know not all sensory input is created equal? The type of input you provide for your students can either be calming or alerting. This handy cheatsheet provides calming and alerting sensory supports across a variety of sensory systems including:

  • Visual (See)
  • Auditory (Hear)
  • Gustatory (Taste)
  • Tactile (Touch)
  • Olfactory (Smell)
  • Vestibular (Move)
