Discovery at Your Fingertips

Help me give my students an area where they can have sensory breaks when needed to help regulate emotions, to build peer relationships and work together.

My Students

My classroom consists of 9 diverse students who are impacted by autism, seizure disorder, cognitive delay, intellectual disability and Downs Syndrome. These students experience challenges such as aggressive behaviors, non-verbal/speech delays, sensory processing sensitivity and many other challenges.

Each student is full of potential.

It is my job to provide them with the tools they need to be successful. The self-contained classrooms do not have all the resources necessary to meet the various needs of each student, and it is my duty as their teacher to provide them with the materials to help them become more successful.

My goal for my students is to provide a safe environment where they can be successful and engaged.

My Project

By bringing in a set of sensory tables, my students will have options to explore sensory materials both independently and in small groups. Several of my students are sensory adverse and allowing them a small area that they can explore on their own will help them overcome some of this adversity.

Many of my students want to be part of a peer group.

Giving the students a way to be engaged in parallel play and having their own materials will allow them to learn to engage with one another.

The addition of a sensory table in my classroom allows my students to not only play and learn through sensory, but it gives them an area to take a sensory break. Some students like to squeeze and squish in order to control overwhelming emotions. By providing them with this table in the classroom they have somewhere to go and calm themselves down.
