My Students

Our school is in a low-income, high poverty area in Florida. Ours is a Title I school, which means that almost all of the students in the school receive free or reduced price lunch. Most of our children come from difficult home environments and have many challenges to overcome.

Our students are hard-working and eager to learn.

They are also so grateful for new opportunities and excited for fun learning experiences. They benefit greatly from enrichment opportunities where they can express themselves and use their creativity.

My Project

Multi-sensory rooms are immersive environments which have been specifically designed to develop a student's senses. They include specialist sensory equipment which can either stimulate student’s mental activity, provide a relaxing environment or promote interaction.

Engaging students with sensory disorders can be a challenging task, especially as a lot of learning equipment can be unexciting or daunting.

They often find the outside world a challenging and stressful place where they don’t feel in control- and this can significantly impact their development.

A multi-sensory room is designed to change this. With a selection of specialist equipment designed to suit the needs of the individual, a multi-sensory room is a safe and engaging place where students of all ages and abilities can learn and interact. It is also a great place for students to bond with their peers and counselor, and form stronger relationships which can be carried into their everyday life.
