All of my students are eager to learn and are excited about learning new things. Some of them need a little extra help. Having a variety of sensory supports can help them to wiggle in their seat when needed with less distractions to the other students. Having sensory toys, such as balls, sand with a variety of textures can also aid in the high need for sensory input many of my students need. Having a variety of items for a student to work for can be helpful. We often use first-then statements to help children work through more difficult activities. First they would complete the challenging activity, then have a preferred item. Some of the favorites are sand, painting, sensory balls or being able to take a break with the tactile pillow in a quiet calming area or safe place. In this area we read stories, can practice breathing strategies, use squish balls & other sensory items to get through difficult parts of the day. Many of my students are non-verbal so giving them a variety of choices makes all the difference for them. We are also implementing the Conscious Discipline Philosophy and strategies. Within this Conscious Discipline approach there is a special component called “The Safe Place.” The safe place is where children can go to change their inner state from upset to calm. The skills we teach and what children learn there is self-regulation. With young children, the safe place can include a variety of items including sensory items, comfy pillows and books to help make the child feel safe & to help enhance self-regulation.
