Our Sensory Journey!

My students need a more multi-sensory learning environment, which will be fulfilled by more calming and sensory based activities such as lighting, textures and switch activated devices.

My Students

As a special needs teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom in addition to their disabilities. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students' disabilities range from a moderate to severe range.

Some have multiple disabilities with a dual sensory loss or Deafblindness that limits their experiences. They need a multi-sensory learning environment to succeed.

My Project

I am in the process of making a sensory room in my classroom and need several lighting devices and other sensory materials to make their environment conducive to learning for my Lifeskills classroom.

The type of learning environment that my students need is more sensory-based and will help them access materials and activities through their senses.

I have students with multiple disabilities and vision and/or hearing losses. They need a more tactile, visual and multi-sensory approach to learning.

Stimulating their senses through the use of textures, visuals, calming lights and aroma therapy allows my students to focus, explore, engage, activate one or all of their senses.

My students will use these resources on a daily basis and during sensory-based center activities. Switches will be used to activate the lights and lighting in the room will be adjusted to meet their needs.
