My Students

Hi! My students are referred to me by the school or their families due to having a hard time emotionally regulating, getting along with others, and/or having a hard time processing through traumatic events. My students and I work on expressing our emotions in a safe way, finding coping skills that work for them, conflict management, and social skills. My students receive a diagnosis before working with me. Each student is different but many of my students are diagnosed with diagnoses such as: ADHD, Major Depressive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and Disruptive Mood Dysregulation.

My Project

My students struggle with regulating emotions. Comfortable and preferred seating will help provide a safe therapeutic environment. These bean bag chairs with be in a "calm down" section of my room!

Please help me provide a comfortable and safe environment for my kiddos who have a variety of needs.

Bean bag chairs mold around the children's body, which creates a calming sensory stimulation. This calm feeling will increase the therapeutic process and help children open up. Many of my kiddos have a trauma history and my goal is to provide a place they feel safe in! Please help my kids! Thank you!
