My Students

My class of Kinder to 2nd grade students with Autism in a low income area of east Dallas work hard to do things others may take for granted. Yet they still need to learn basic academic along with learning to communicate and managing sensory and behavior needs.

It is difficult to concentrate when you have specific sensory needs that cannot be address while sitting in a school desk or chair.

Flexible sitting in my classroom will help alleviate some sensory deficits while making learning a happier process.

My Project

These bean bags will allow my students to fulfill their sensory needs by allowing tactile stimulation through touch and feel, making them feel comfortable, and allowing them to feel safe and secure in the classroom environment. Autistic students have difficulty regulating the sensory input they are receiving. Which is why sensory breaks are so important for them.

Students with Autism tend to move around a lot and from my experience Autistic students will tilt the chairs backwards while not understanding the dangers that could follow.

Bean bags will be used for story time, circle time and much need sensory breaks. Having these bean bags for story and circle time will allow my students to make choices between the type of seats they want to sit it and the color of bean bag they want.
