Shake, Rattle, and Roll

Help me give my students the sensory input they need to have a successful education experience. My students need a safe place to lay/sit on when they are out of their wheelchairs to explore their educational enviroment.

My Students

We are a moderate to severe special education all day class (SDC) with a wide variety of disabilities and ages. Although some of my students have limitations of what they can do, they have a huge heart to give it their all to strive to succeed in everything they try.

These students live in an impoverished neighborhood, where they are often not exposed to technology and other resources.

Many of these students have not had the opportunity to receive the intervention, prior to arriving at school.

Many of these students live in multi-family homes with little access to real world experiences. These students love to be loved and want to be successful. They come to school every day with smiles on their faces, regardless of what may be happening at home.

My Project

Every child wants a safe environment, where they can explore their surroundings. My students are in need of items to help them with their sensory needs. Many of my students need alternative seating ( floor lounger) to help with this sensitivity towards the texture or posture of a chair. While other students need items (such as the P and Q chewies)to help with their oral sensations and their need to fidget( sensory board). By chewing on items like the chewies, students will be sure to not have pieces fall off in their mouths. Many of their disabilities require them to receive a sensory diet of different textures, sounds (the use of musical toys such that as the Disney plush toys), and weights.

Our students live everyday with the challenge of being able to do daily tasks; giving them a classroom that allows them to feel at home and successful is something everyone should be able to get the opportunity to do.

Many of my students are in wheelchairs and enjoy every moment of being free from them. We need special, soft, secure places for them to lay and sit ( floor lounger and floor pillow). By being able to gain access to these items my students will be able to have a successful day at school allowing them to reach their fullest potential in gaining all the knowledge they need to become everything we know they can be.
