Sensory processing plays an essential part in the way we interact with others and the world around us. When examined more closely, this simple truth allows us to understand what we can do to lead healthier, more productive lives.
At The Deron School we are changing the face of sensory integration for students with special needs. Through teamwork and collaboration, our multi-faceted, tiered approach empowers students to take an active role in their well-being.
Free access to sensory items for all students, sensory nooks in our classrooms and a state-of-the-art sensory room are just some of the ways we help students understand their individual needs. Using Verbal Behavior Therapy (VBT), students are taught to request the sensory input they need to be at their best. The final stage in teaching a student to self-regulate is understanding how to transfer this information to functional daily living skills so they are able to reach their greatest level of independence.
