"The best way to interrupt the cycle of poverty is to support children's physical, socio-emotional, and educational needs." Cheryl Suliteanu.
Help my students to successfully participate and enjoy school!
Our elementary school is in a high poverty area and many students come to school hungry. Not all of my students are able to participate fully in their general education without extra support. These materials will help my students learn how to be successful, independent, and happy in life.
The spin disc helps with training motor skills and increasing balance coordination for students. The disc helps develop fine and gross motor skills and improves balance and coordination by creating an unstable sitting surface for kids. Students will be able to use this equipment in our new school wide sensory room when they take structured breaks throughout their day. These breaks are vital in helping my students be successful at school by providing an environment in which they can calm their bodies. The physical therapist, occupational therapist, and I all collaborate in order to make the best program for the students so they can participate the best they can in the general education setting.
