We would like to purchase items to create a sensory room. This will be a place where students can come to receive some sensory input in a safe and fun environment. Items in the room will provide specific sensory input to help students with self -regulation, focus and be able to spend a longer time on classroom tasks.

This room can be used by an entire class, small group or individual student with adult supervision. The items in the room will be geared to meet multiple objectives depending on student needs.

We want to incorporate activities that focus on proprioception - awareness of where your body is in space; and the vestibular system - the sense of balance. Research shows that working on both areas helps students become better able to self-regulate, focus and retain information.  Our goal is that when students participate in consistent sensory experiences (movement and activities in the sensory room), it will help them calm and center themselves. They will also be more focused and able to go back to the classroom ready to learn.

 

We hope that by providing purposeful tools for designated sensory activities will increase student success throughout our entire school.
