Our school addresses the needs of Kindergarten aged children with Autism in a high needs community in New York. In September of 2009 our doors opened for the first time. The site began with limited funding and maximum needs. Our students have a range of developmental, academic and social limitations.

Since our site as only been open for one year now, we are still limited to supplies. Part of my students' day involves a relaxation and sensory. Sensory materials and activities are very important for students with autism.

My students need a place to relax and take a break for a couple minutes between work. Bean bag chairs are a great sensory item to have in a classroom. Relaxation music is also a good tool to have to sooth my students' dispositions.

You can help by providing sensory materials for my students. Bean bag chairs and relaxation music are good for my students to stay focus throughout the day.
