My students need a sensory room that will provide opportunities to interact with different materials that meet their sensory processing needs.
We are an elementary school located in a low-income neighborhood in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Special Education department consists of students from Preschool-5th grade who receive services for academic, independent functioning, social skills, and sensory processing difficulties. Our school is full of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and ability levels, and we strive to make every student feel valued and important while they are at school. We want our students to love learning and dream of their futures and all of the opportunities available to them.
Many students in our school especially struggle with emotional regulation and handling sensory challenges.
Our school has five special education classrooms servicing a large range of students and their varying needs. Lunalilo Elementary has decided to take on social and emotional learning as a primary focus for our school in order to address the needs of our students.
Our students need a space that is designated for sensory processing. Here at Lunalilo, we have many students that would benefit from a calm and quiet environment where they can calm down when frustrated or overwhelmed. Because we are located in the middle of a city, our students would benefit from a peaceful and interactive environment where they are able to move their bodies and regulate their senses.
Allowing our students to have a space to calm down and address their sensory needs will allow them to be more successful when they return to the classroom.
Items such as a weighted blanket, LED lights, or different sensory balls will help students focus on their needs and regulate their own bodies. By using materials that are tactile and varied, we give students multiple options in how they want to meet their needs, and therefore decrease the risk of satiation on one particular item. This will increase the likelihood that our sensory room will continue to benefit our students for years to come.
By giving students a designated space that they can meet these sensory needs, we are able to teach students to advocate for their own needs by asking to go to the room, and empower them to think about and express their needs in relation to their emotions and bodies. The Hawk's Nest sensory room would benefit the Special Education community at Lunalilo for years to come.
