Under or over stimulation sensory processing problems that are not met, can contribute to classroom management problems and set children up for failure. By researching through a plethora of books, on-line resources, and professional journals, the researcher gained more knowledge of why sensory processing disorders occur, and what research has to say about helping children who need more or less stimulation. Conducting a survey and questionnaire for teachers and occupational therapists, ideas were able to be formed of things that have been, or have not been successful when working with children who are over or under stimulated. Gaining valuable ideas from these resources has helped to brainstorm a plan on how to set up a classroom, and implement sensory integration to help benefit future children.
