Storage Closet Makeover to Sensory Student Space

My students need tables and sensory materials to transform this old storage closet into a usable student work space and sensory room for kids with special needs.

My Students

My amazing students attend a fully-inclusive charter school, meaning that students with a diverse range of special needs learn and play together in the general education setting. To be successful in this setting, many students need extra supports and creative teaching methods. They have disabilities such as Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, and ADHD.

At my school, 20% of students qualify as having special needs, as compared to about 11-12% in typical public schools.

We need your support in order to provide the best learning environment for these unique individuals.

My Project

Sitting at a desk all day can be hard for grown-ups, let alone students with special needs! Your generous donation will help transform an old storage closet into a usable student work space and sensory room.

Sometimes, you just need a break!

Exercise balls, scooter board, trampoline, and an exercise mat will provide movement for wiggly bodies while drop-leaf desks and chairs will create a quiet work space for students who are noise-sensitive or just easily distracted. Sensory activities can help get our students in that "just right" place for learning.

At our small school, space is at a premium. Your support will ensure that no square foot goes unused so that every student has the opportunity to receive what their unique learning style demands.
