A sensory room would allow students to enhance learning and seek activities by allowing the students’ bodies to learn and play by engaging different areas of the brain. This will help children regulate their sensory system, which is needed before they can absorb and retain more information and better meet their needs. When a child’s sensory system is regulated, a child will improve balance, movement, and spatial orientation by helping the student’s visual processing skills in addition to fine and gross motor skills. These activities are to be incorporated into their daily routines and activities. An effective sensory room includes lights, colors, sounds, sensory soft play objects, movement and motion within a safe, structured environment that allows students to explore and interact without risk or being overwhelming. Sensory rooms not only help those with sensory issues but also students with learning difficulties, developmental disabilities, and emotional issues. Within the sensory room students learn to regulate their sensory system to the “just right’ stage needed for optimal learning to occur. It is our school's desire to meet the child’s needs before there is a negative behavior or decrease in attention. A sensory room would allow them to feel more comfortable, secure, and focus to learn throughout their school day. We want to share this room with general education teachers, other intervention specialists, and other support staff. This will allow students to have access to the room through their daily routines at school. Equipment needed to accomplish this would be calming and alerting items to meet the needs of all sensory systems such as sensory pea pods, weighted and stretchy materials, stepping stones, sensory lighting, manipulative basket with fidgets.
