Spinning Into Focus!

My students need a megaspinner to provide vestibular input during the school day in order to maintain focus on school related tasks.

My Students

I am a special education teacher and work with students in a life skills classroom for students in third, fourth and fifth grades. My students have a variety of diagnoses and a variety of needs. These students work hard each day and have demonstrated the ability to maintain a positive attitude.

Many of my students face challenges experienced by few.

Most face these challenges head on; I am often blown away by their tenacity. I am extraordinarily lucky to spend my time with this group of students.

My Project

When students are able to regulate their sensory systems they are available to participate in positive interactions with others, focus on school related tasks and meet their educational goals. The life skills students in my school will benefit from the use of the mega spinner when they access our sensory room.

Providing a variety of sensory options allows us to help students to access their educational program as well as access and relate to their peers.

Students may require a variety of sensory diets in order to self-regulate, the mega spinner will fill the need for vestibular stimulation that our sensory room does not currently provide.
