Mr. Morabito from Richmond CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Communication, Fine Motor, and Sensory Skills

I teach adolescent students with severe disabilities in a high school serving a disproportionately economically disadvantaged population.

Our classroom lacks materials that can help students with severe disabilities develop coordination, motor, communication, and tactile skills.

The Therapressure Brush and the Vibrating Pillow are crucial tools for working with students who have sensory impairments. The communication cow is a sensory stimulating communication device. The Training Scissors, Pencil Grips and Shape Sorters develop coordination as well as fine-motor planning and control.

Your help will ensure that my students with the severest disabilities can achieve tactile, communication and fine motor awareness and skills.

Mr. Morabito
Grades 9-12
More than half of students from low‑income households
