Special Ed Class Needs Sensory Tools!

Help me give my students the tools to express their emotions! My students are special education students and are often frustrated or need ways to control their feelings.

My Students

My students are special needs, yet they are some of the most caring and friendly students I have ever had. They want to help anytime someone needs assistance and are always striving to do their best.

My students come from low-income families and 1/3 are English Language Learners.

Despite their disabilities, which range from autism to learning disabilities and intellectual disabilities, they all come to school excited and ready to learn! They especially enjoy writing stories and are learning how to spell many new words to write with. I am surprised and thrilled at how quickly they are learning.

My Project

My students are special education students with learning and intellectual disabilities, autism, ADHD, and motor skill delays. They get frustrated easily and need to learn to regulate their emotions. They are young, ages 6-8, and can use the flexible seating, sensory items, and social-emotional tools to assist them in reaching their full potential!

The flex-Space balance balls are perfect for my students that have a difficult time staying their seats and are constantly moving.

The Comfy Floor Seats will be excellent for when the students need to take a break in our quiet area and read a book, or use the Discovery Tubes and Rainsticks to calm down. The sensory items are perfect for those students that need that stimulation. The special education materials, such as the balls and scissors will help those that are behind developmentally.
