Topic: Sensory, for everyone, drives either a relaxed and “ready state” or a crisis/survival state. Behavior communicates which state the brain is in. This presentation will discuss the five main coping strategies - Minimize, Tolerate, Sensory Seek, Avoid/Take a Break, and Routine Schedule - as a blueprint to decode difficult behaviors and enhance consistency and function in an individual’s daily routine and environments. Audience participation will be emphasized in application of a sensory worksheet exploring alternate opportunities that these five coping strategies encourage to enhance consistency, support, connection, and safety for behavioral challenges that individuals may present.
