“We ignore that our kids are overwhelmed with sensory input for at least eight hours a day.
They can only appropriately tend to learning tasks when they are emotionally, physically and mentally in a good place. Expecting them to do otherwise is, at best, a waste of time.
At worst, it is the beginning of a chain reaction that will perpetuate sensory overload for the entire class.” – Wende Parsley, Midland Reporter-Telegram
