Sensory Swing for Autism

Help me give my students a sensory swing to replace the one that has broken!

My Students

My students are in a moderate/severe autism spectrum classroom and we want to work on expanding our elective program. We spend a lot of time working on life skills, money, community based instruction, and accessing the community for jobs and social interactions. My students enjoy sensory stimulation in the form of swings, fidgets, music, art, and visuals. My goal for each student is to leave high school with the ability to access the community safely and work where they find purpose.My students range from 9th-12th grade and have many talents and gifts.

We are a Title I school with students who are wonderful and really try their best.

I have a lot of support from my general education co-educators and we integrate our students together. My students require sensory input throughout the day and they all enjoy arts and working outside. My students ride the bus for at least 40 minutes to come to school without complaint. They enjoy going out into the community and working at jobs like Round Table and CVS.

My Project

My students are on the autism spectrum and have a variety of sensory needs. Not only do I try to meet all their academic goals, transition goals, community goals, but I also want to help them meet their sensory needs.

Our sensory swing has broken and the students have requested a new one.

We have a sensory swing in our room but it was a hammock style swing. The ropes within the swing are broke and more strings are breaking. I have many students that need this to help them access their day and help regulate their sensory needs. This swing will replace the one that is no longer safe to use and I already have all the hardware in place.
