Help me give my students an educational experience to help fulfill their sensory needs in the classroom.
I work with high school students with a variety of intellectual, physical, and sensory impairments that have severe to moderate disabilities including Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Autism, Seizure disorders, and other physical and mentally handicapping conditions.
They currently attend a specialized academic instructive classroom but are often stuck in their wheelchairs for most of the day.
This puts them at risk for pressure sores and reduces their joint and bone health. These students would benefit from having a sensory room to support them not only academically, but physically as well. The ability to get out of their wheelchairs and explore different tactile, visual, and auditory experiences at their own level will dramatically improve their progress on their individualized goals.
I would greatly appreciate any donations that you could make toward this wish to help meet the sensory needs of these children.
My students would benefit from getting out of their wheelchairs and into a multi-sensory experience. This will help prevent pressure sores and improve mobility and exploration. These students need to be able to explore their environment in a safe space.
I would like to provide sensory engaging activities for these students rather than having them sit in a chair all day pretending to absorb high school lecture material.
The cozy covers will help to block off the harsh classroom lighting. A large fluff chair would offer a more comfortable place to sit/recline. The vibrating toys will provide proprioceptive feedback as well as offer a great tactile stimulus. The equipment will be used to support their needs with vibration, pressure, smooth and rough surfaces, squishy and hard objects, and places to stretch out and move freely. Please help me make this much needed sensory room happen!
