Ms. Simmons from Waipahu HI is requesting flexible seating through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Sensory Based Learning

Help me give my students a fully immersive sensory learning experience! Many of my students with Autism need sensory breaks in order to be successful. Things like the swing, lighting changes, sensory chairs are great motivators!

My Project

COVID-19 impacted learning by increasing behaviors and reducing as much hands-on learning time. When the pandemic hit, many of my students were impacted by having to learn through distant learning. All my students are visual, hands-on/ tactile learners with disabilities and are in need of a multitude of sensory based learning environments. The flexible sensory seating will help students achieve longer periods of time to be able to work, as well as seating that addresses many of their sensory needs. The resources requested are going to be used to motivate and help support students in their learning through helping to reduce behavioral concerns while increasing learning time and having an enjoyable learning experience. By donating to our project, you will not only be helping to increase learning time but supporting us in helping our students with disabilities to have an enjoyable sensory-filled learning experience.
