Help me give my students an anxious free transition during activities and new situations with 2 Weighted Lap Pads. By using this, it will help several of my students decrease their feelings of uncertainty and anxiety.
I teach a wonderful, kind-spirited, charismatic, unique variety of students whom I completely adore. My students teach me so much more than I teach them. My classroom is a self-contained special education classroom ranging from grades Kindergarten through 5th grade. I have a total of 13 students in my classroom.
Everyone that comes in contact with my students cannot help, but feel more love in their hearts and will be better people because of it.
My students have a variety of needs. One of my students has cerebral palsy which has forced him to be in a wheel chair. He also has vision and fine motor weaknesses due to this. He is the most involved of my students requiring lots of assistance with academics and also self-help skills. We are very blessed to have a personal assistant for him to help with his personal needs. I also have three students with Down Syndrome and nine others that have intellectual disabilities. Out of those nine, three have severe language delays which cause them great difficulty with accessing the curriculum.
By having the weighted lap pads, my students can feel at ease during situations such as school plays, music class, physical education, special guests, and different experiences that could cause initial nervousness and anxiety.
Classroom/school experiences should cause joy and excitement not anxiety.
The Kit Button Talk Set will also be beneficial for my classroom. They will be used with my students who have language impairments for such situations as needing to go to the restroom, not feeling well, or answering academic questions. This will decrease frustration when my students feel they cannot be understood. By decreasing frustration, my students will learn more and disruptions will decrease.
