When my students are struggling to calm down and deal with all the things that life throws at them - we have a tiny room to go to. Often other students are using that room which means it is even harder for them to learn how to manage their emotions - especially if I am already working with another student. This program would help me, help more than one student at a time. The program monitors the student's heart rate and breathing in a fun interactive way - making it easier for the student to escape the negative cycle of emotions and get back to class and gain the education they so desperately need. The program teaches the student to self-regulate which is shown to be one of the MOST important skills for future life success. My students struggle through no fault of their own and I want to give them every opportunity to be happy, healthy adults and this program will help me do this. These children lack the skills they need to be successful and this program will help me teach them the skills they need to have a bright future.
