My Students

I am a self-contained teacher for K-2 students. 3 of my students are non-verbal and 4 are severely autistic. These adorable kids love soothing music, low lighting, water fountains and anything relaxing. They are all very smart and work extremely hard for me every single day. However, we go through multiple daily meltdowns because of sensory overload.

I have researched tirelessly looking for ideas to help their sensory needs.

I would absolutely love to create a mini snoezelen in my classroom. I truly believe that my kids would be so happy with this addition to our classroom. I firmly believe that these kids will make amazing progress if I can just satisfy their need for sensory. This addition to our classroom would give them the opportunity to take sensory breaks in between their lessons. I love these kids as if they were my own, and I want to see them succeed not only in my classroom, but in the years to come.

My Project

A snoezelen is a researched-base therapy used for people with autism and developmental disabilities. It is a soothing and stimulating environment designed to create stimuli to various senses with light effects, color, sound, touch, and scents.

By creating this environment, it will help my autistic students to reach a sense of balance aiding them in the relaxation process, and reducing anxiety and pain.

It also increases a student's potential to focus on his own and improve communication and functioning. I firmly believe my students' learning experience will benefit from this tremendously. I refuse to believe that my students can't make progress!
