Hooray! This project is fully funded
This project will serve a wide range of students, many of whom have sensory integration needs. Our school is a Title 1 elementary school with a large population of non-English speakers. At least 80% of our students currently live in poverty and over 60% are English Language Learners.
Our school has a high population of students who have sensory needs as well as behavior differences.
In addition to socioeconomic and language challenges, the students I work with also have a variety special needs. These students with benefit greatly from a safe environment where they can access individual learning for their specific needs.
My school does not currently have a designated space for meeting a child's sensory needs. My students' sensory needs are not met by the normal day to day activities of school.
A therapy swing will offer a means of gaining appropriate sensory input in a safe manner.
The diverse culture and specific needs of our schools are not easily met in the general education classroom. Offering a specific location for this item will help to engage them in a calm and safe environment, regulate their bodies and ease anxiety throughout the school day while increasing their ability to be successful with their academic curriculum
