Help me give my students who have severe physical and cognitive disabilities a light table to help fulfill sensory needs, benefit their fine motor skills, calm and help soothe anxiousness and or anger, and ultimately become more verbal!
I teach a fantastic group of students with severe physical and cognitive disabilities. My students love coming to school and learning. This is more than a classroom of students and a teacher, but a very happy family!
The students in my classroom have a wide range of disabilities.
We have many nonverbal students, some with feeding tubes and four students with toileting/diapering needs. We have students in wheelchairs and wearing head protection. I have several students with autism, who are wired to receive and utilize sensory inputs. Most of my students’ senses are their most familiar way to explore, process, and understand new information.
I am beyond blessed to have the opportunity to work at our school and serve this fantastic group of students!
My students who have severe physical and cognitive disabilities need a light table to help fulfill sensory needs. This innovative light table can display four vibrant colors! It features a big illuminated surface with plenty of room for building and exploring…and comes with a remote control that allows you to change, dim or flash the colors—at the touch of a button! This table would benefit their fine motor skills, calm and help soothe anxiousness and or anger, and ultimately, I believe with this light table, it would assist my students in becoming more verbal. This light table is an engaging hands-on center that will help my students increase their on-task independent behavior during workstations. All my students will utilize these manipulatives!
