Sensory Room

Help me give my students a sensory room that meets all sensory needs

My Students

I teach students with special needs who have severe disabilities. These students primarily stay in my classroom all day. They are extremely hard workers who have a love for learning. They have the biggest hearts and care so much about helping others and giving back to their community. For example, they go into the community and work to give back to local businesses. They also run a coffee shop every morning where all the proceeds will go to charity. I am so proud of their hard work and determination to show the community all the things that they can do.

My Project

We are trying to build our sensory room to meet all students sensory needs. Building a sensory room that is age appropriate for secondary students can be a difficult and expensive task. I have students who calm down and self stimulate by singing and "performing concerts, with music, looking at various lights, and bouncing on furniture. Giving these students items that meet their sensory needs enhances focus in the classroom. It gives them a chance to control their emotions and prevent over-stimulation. Building an age appropriate sensory room will give my students with severe special needs a safe place within the classroom.
