Help me give my students the sensory supports they need with these weighted lap pads and blankets so they can more easily access the general education curriculum.
I work with the most fantastic population of students in our district! We also happen to be the largest Title I school in our district. All of our students have the option to participate in the free breakfast and lunch program. Our students also have the opportunity to sign up for "Backpack Buddies" where they get to take home a backpack full of food home for the weekend.
I have the opportunity to work with students from all over the globe, from remote villages in Alaska to refugees from Gambia.
