My Students

I teach special education K-2nd grade in a rural primary school. My class consists of 4 boys and 1 girl who are full of excitement about coming to school. My students are diverse in their abilities and goals. Some of my students are learning to read, write, and count, while others are learning to imitate sounds and the proper way to hold a pencil.

The work we do in this classroom is about learning social skills, following directions, accessing sensory needs for students to better cope with their needs.

We celebrate gains daily.

My Project

The indoor sensory swing will enable my students to learn body awareness, balance, motor planning, and spatial skills. I would like to broaden the sensory options within my classroom. The swing serves as a versatile item and can be used by sensory seeking and sensory avoiding children. All of my students would benefit emotionally and academically with the use of this swing.

It will provide sensory pressure and creates a fun space to bounce, swing, spin, or lie down enjoying the movement of the swing.

Deep Pressure Therapy has a positive effect on hormone levels. Researchers found that Deep Pressure Therapy actually increases “happy” serotonin levels by 28% percent. They also found that the stress hormone, cortisol, decreased by 31%.
