Help me give my students the sensory and fine motor supports that they require in order to be the most successful in the classroom as well as in their daily lives.
I teach Early Childhood Special Education and my students are unique in that they have a range of diverse abilities and disabilities.
Each child has the capacity to learn and sometimes they require special supports in order for them to show their potential.
My students range from having mild disabilities (speech impediment) to severe disabilities (multiple disabilities; intellectual disability). They also have diverse abilities in the areas of pre-academics (i.e. reading, writing, and math), social skills, behavioral skills, emotional skills, and self-help skills. They have the eagerness and love of learning, they just need a range of support in order to meet their different learning styles and pacing.
Students with disabilities will sometimes exhibit inappropriate or maladaptive behaviors when they become over or under-stimulated. They may not know how to use their words to express their feelings and instead they show us with their behaviors.
When our student's sensory needs are met, then they are able to return their focus and attention on the academic tasks.
The small sensory supports will allow students to remain in the designated location in order to maintain attention to the task at hand. The large sensory supports will allow students to take the movement break their body requires in order to return to the previous task. The fine motor supports will encourage and motivate students to perform the more challenging tasks that typically result in behaviors due to frustration. The materials we need, help students to meet their sensory needs in appropriate ways, while encouraging them to communicate their wants and needs.
