Mrs. Vonsas from Sunderland MD is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Seating for Speech Therapy Students

Help me give my students flexible seating options, to allow them to better access their education in our speech therapy room. This project includes a variety of seating options in appropriate sizes for my wide range of students.

My Students

As a speech-language pathologist, I am fortunate enough to work with students within every grade-level at my school. I typically see between 45 to 50 students throughout the school year to work on speech-language skills. The largest portion of my caseload is made up of 3 to 5-year-old students within inclusive special education and general education pre-k classrooms.

My students love books, coloring, and hands-on activities that allow them to explore and be creative.

My students are all working to improve the way they communicate with others. Some of my students are practicing the way they produce their speech sounds, while others are working to improve the way they express and understand language.

My students are all such unique learners and they thrive being at a school where they are immersed in engaging language opportunities. I am thankful to be just one piece in their growth and success in education.

My Project

Flexible seating will contribute to the sensory friendly classroom that I aspire to create. I would love to give my students the opportunity to try out different methods to help them better access their education. My students are all such unique learners, coming from different classrooms with different needs.

Supporting this flexible seating project means my students can explore sensory options to help them learn in speech-language therapy.

They can wiggle while they work on naming common objects and actions. My students can bounce while they practice producing their /r/ sound in sentences. They can cool down on the floor with an over-sized, soft pillow after a challenging transition from the classroom to the speech room.

Flexible seating will provide so many more options for my students than we currently have. I can't wait to see how this project not only allows them to try new things, but enhances their learning and growth.
