My Students

My high school class consist of multi-grade level students with diverse disabilities. I teach a Curriculum Assistance class that concentrates across content curricula mixed in with real relatable application. Every child, every day, is our school motto while I like to add in my class, "Every child, Every Day, in Every Way"

Sensory issues create a barrier that hinder my students from achieving their goals.

The simplest, broadband issue that can be addressed is the overhead fluorescent lighting . The bright lights can trigger physical, behavioral and academic roadblocks in my students success. In the past, I have used low lighting as a calming effect with great results. However, updated fire safety policies do not allow for this type of lighting in a classroom (understandable) and the students can not transition well with the fluorescent lights (32 tube light fixtures)

I like to think of my classroom as an extension of my own house. Everyone is welcomed, there are plenty of snacks, diverse seating and plenty of interactions. All we need now is to turn down the lights and get back to work!

My Project

The majority of my students deal with a wide variety of sensory issues. Some are tactile while others are auditory and visual. I usually provide a wide variety of stress related objects for my students to use throughout the class.

Environmental stimulus are a major concern in my class.

Students state the bright fluorescent lighting causes them headaches as well as stress related behavior. Having a fire retardant approved light shades would significantly decrease behaviors and increase a sense of calmness. All sensory products are appreciated in helping our students learn in a supportive atmosphere that meets their individual needs.
