The materials requested would tremendously help my kids who have varying disabilities. Having these items for a sensory area in our classroom will encourage social interaction by working on communication & cooperation skills, satisfy visual and tactile sensory, improve mood and behavior, and help with overall use of movement (balance & body strength). The Sensory Fidget Toys, the Mini Rainmaker, the Kooshball & Tangles, and the JellyBeadz will target tactile sensory stimulation for improved attention skills and deter them from engaging in negative behaviors. The LED Calming Sensory Light will target visual sensory stimulation and improve the mood for our kids with emotional disability. The Foam Roller, Twisting Fitness Boards, Trampoline and Balance Ball will help our kids balance their own body weight and help them develop fitness awareness. Cooperation or social interaction will advance with the use of the Champion Physical Education pack as they play team sports. Additionally, communication skills may improve as they verbally share their experiences with these activities and build meaningful relationships. A majority of my kids also have speech language impairment. According to Baranek, integration of sensory integration activities are meant to help the nervous system modulate, organize, and integrate information from the environment, resulting in future adaptive responses. Thus, our kids can transfer these processes to their academics as they can readily refocus and process new concepts fluidly.
