Description

In this episode, Meghan Roberson, a dual-certified SLP and BCBA and the Owner/Director of Anchor ABA shares the Sensory Pyramid or "Pyramid of Learning." Meghan explains how there is often a lack of training and general awareness that the impact of dysregulation can have on all types of behavior. Increased understanding on this topic can cause an important shift in mindset on how to approach behavior challenges in a proactive and effective.



Although teachers and behavior analysts are not licensed to diagnose deficits in sensory areas, it is so important for a BCBA or educator to be able to recognize sensory processing challenges, make appropriate referrals to OT if needed, and work with an OT to maximize the benefits of ABA based strategies. If a child is dyregulated, it'll be much harder for them to learn the important skills and regulate behavior.


Meghan walks us through sensory processing, the sensory pyramid, and the 8 senses in detail!
