TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need weighted vests to help support some of their sensory needs, and help them focus, so that they can learn and grow as students and as individuals.
Our students want to make positive changes and succeed in all aspects of life. They have dreams and goals but don't know how to achieve them. We are a small school and the ideals of working together as a community can be seen in almost every aspect of our daily routines. However, because we are a small school, we don't have the budget to support our students' social emotional needs in the full capacity.
As the Guidance Counselor, I am only there to support the students twice a week.
It can be challenging addressing all the social emotional needs of the students when there isn't a full time counselor. Many of our students are limited in their social skill set and have trouble maintaining positive peer relationships. They want to strengthen their school community but they just don't know how to and that leads them to making choices that lead to negative affects or consequences.
We are a small elementary school and meeting our children's needs are sometimes beyond what our school can provide. Our budget is low and we have many students who have sensory limitations and having the weighted vests can potentially help them manage their bodies better and feel more comfortable and in control. I have seen first hand the benefits of having weighted vests available in schools and how much a student with needs can benefit from having one. Simply having that extra weight to give them the control they need can make all the difference in how they perform academically as well as how they interact with their peers. Control of our bodies, minds, and emotions is what we as adults want for ourselves... so why not help give children some of that control as well?
