Our school consists of students from PreK-5th grade. We are a community of diverse learners with Special Education, ELL, and high poverty students learning together in each classroom.
My Special Education students, along with the other students in the school, have difficulties being able to focus on learning and filter out the overwhelming social and emotional struggles they have to overcome daily.
Giving my Special Education students and the other students in the school the opportunity to overcome their struggles will allow them to be successful in their learning skills, social skills, collaboration skills and maintain focus amongst their peers.
The steamroller will offer my students with autism more than just deep pressure, it will allow them to work on motor planning skills, body awareness, shoulder stability and self-regulation skills as they work their bodies out of the steamroller.
My students apply deep pressure by challenging themselves to crawling between the rollers and being flattened by the steamroller to Release the Steam!
The steamroller will provide the deep pressure many of my students with autism crave which helps with self-regulation skills. Being able to self-regulate after using the steamroller, my students will be able to focus and increase their learning.
