Students Seeking Sensory Stimulation

My students need a sensory space to help calm and focus themselves.

My Students

My exceptional students are learning in a highly structured classroom at a Title 1 dual language school. They come to school everyday to participate in individualized education that focuses on communication skills, motor skills, behavior management, pre-academic and academic instruction and social skills.

Sometimes the world can be overwhelming for my students, and my job is to help them learn to safely handle their feelings and sensory needs.

Students in my class fall on the autism spectrum or have related disabilities that benefit from instructional strategies designed for students on the autism spectrum.

My students learn in a close-knit small environment and grow everyday! They work hard on academic skills and play hard while practicing social, communication and behavioral skills.

My Project

Individuals on the autism spectrum often have challenges with sensory processing. That means that the students in my classroom are impacted in their ability to respond to information that comes in through their senses: sight, touch, sound, smell and taste. Studies conducted by therapists have proven that play and interaction in a sensory space can change how the brain reacts to sensory stimulation, thus improving daily functioning for individuals on the autism spectrum.

I have chosen objects that stimulate the senses, such as a light cube, a bubble tube, a sensory crash pad, and various other materials, to create a sensory space within my classroom.

My students will have the option to spend time each day in the sensory space to help them calm, focus and self-regulate. The objects chosen will allow them to have access to sensory stimulation when they need it.
