This year I have taken on a new adventure! I moved to a school that provides services to students and individuals (preschool - age 21) with severe cognitive and physical impairments. This school services individual with severe disabilities within the district and other local districts that exhibit a need for highly specialized educational support for individual students. I couldn't be more excited to begin this new adventure.
These students work so hard, despite the many challenges they face because of disabilities, disrupted home lives, being homeless or in danger of homelessness, and living in poverty.
Students face additional challenges including speech and language disorders, ADHD/ADD, physical impairments, cognitive impairments, and health issues like seizure disorders.
Our classroom will truly be their home away from home. In our classroom, we will be a family, and everyone will work to do their best and to be their best every day.
My students constantly need to wiggle and move! I am seeking some seating options and fidgets to help them do just that. The new seats will provide a large enough seat for my students that is comfortable and able to hold a sensory cushion for students to sit on and wiggle while they listen and work. The fidgets and finger exerciser will provide opportunities for my students to strengthen their fine motor skills while keeping their bodies in motion. Lastly, the large flexible tub will provide ample storage for all of our wonderful fidget exerciser tools. Please provide my learners with the tools they need to be successful!
