Sunshine Takes the Blues Away
Help me give my students Alaska Northern Lights Bright Light Therapy Box and Carex Day-Light Classic Plus Bright Light Therapy Lamp
I work as a preschool, special education, developmental, classroom teacher. All of my students have a delay in their development, including but not limited to social skills, fine and gross motor development, self-help skills, speech/language and/or cognitive delays.
All children in my classroom are dependents of United States soldiers, and over half come from homes of low socioeconomic status.
Our focus is on social and emotional health and well-being of children, motor development and preparing students for kindergarten and beyond. Learning is hands-on, minds-on engagement in our program that is play-based and full of self-discovery.
As many of us know, the winter months can be challenging times, especially with so much darkness, in addition to many cloudy, dreary days. Getting outside to play is helpful, including getting fresh air, however, the addition of the Alaska Northern Lights Bright Light Therapy Box North Star 10,000, will provide supplemental therapy lighting for all students, even on the darkest and gloomy days.
Light therapy will be helpful in improving my students moods throughout typical days in the classroom environment: Less irritability, sadness, crying, increasing energy, experiencing a higher level of engagement in classroom activities, ability to focus and concentrate on tasks for extended periods of time, decrease in inappropriate behaviors, increasing levels of success in individual learners.
