Sensory or speech, what would you choose for your child?

I need mylot friends help. My daughter is attending a summer session and lately she had to leave early for speech therapy every Tuesday and Thursday. This means we need to remove her from sensory time at school. The school has a sensory room where they attend around 2:15 which is also the same time she needs to leave for therapy. So my question, what really goes on in the sensory room? Does anybody have this experience and had the luxury of visiting a sensory room with their kids? Pls share with me your experience. Is it wrong for me to take her out of sensory time, so she can be on time for speech? The speech office is 10 miles away from the school. What is the best option here? Take her out early for speech and miss sensory time? Or keep her in sensory time and miss 15 minutes of speech?

Well, if your child has sensory problems, then she needs to continue her sensory program. Same as speech. Both are very important. You might have to figure a new schedule out and work things out because they are both very important.
