Help me create an engaging, calming, flexible and welcoming learning environment for my students with special needs. My goal is to meet my students emotional and behavioral needs so that they can focus on academics and learning to meet their goals in my class. My students are amazing and resilient. They do have special learning needs and struggle with emotional, behavioral and attention needs that have increased due to the Pandemic and virtual learning (last school year) . My students are have diagnoses of ADHD, OCD, Specific Learning Disability, Sensory Integration Disorder, Autism and so on. Many of my students receive psychological counseling and behavior services at school weekly. I have found in my 4 years of being a Special Education Teacher that fidget toys and flexible seating are very effective in calming a student so that they can focus on learning and meeting their individual goals. My student's faces light up and they are so excited when they can use a fidget toy in my class or choose a different seat while learning. Fidget toys are self-regulation tools to help with focus, attention, calming, and active listening. There are many different types of fidget toys, ranging from squeezable stress balls to bendable sticks to malleable putty. Regardless of the type of toy used, or flexible seating offered the goal is the same – to help focus attention and improve learning ability. In fact, research indicates that most children learn better when their hands are active and funneling expandable energy in this manner allows them to better focus on what they are trying to learn.
