My students need sensory processing aides to neutralize environmental stimulation and calm anxieties.
My name is Mrs. G and I am a Special Education teacher working with children in kindergarten through 5th grade. I currently have 15 students who have mild to severe disabilities. All 15 students are unique, with different needs, and our classroom works to establish individualized instruction for each student.
Sensory processing is a primary concern in my special education classroom.
My students can easily become over-stimulated by their environment. Bright lights, loud noises, or too much clutter near their work area can have negative effects on their behavior . Each child reacts differently to these environmental stimulants. Their reactions include crying, screaming, running away, self injury, hiding, or refusal to complete work. I hope you will help me to acquire several sensory processing aides that will help to neutralize environmental stimulation for students in my classroom.
I hope to acquire various sensory processing aides for my special education classroom. I will use these sensory processing aides to neutralize negative student behaviors from environmental stimulants. Crying, screaming, running away, and refusal to complete activities will be minimized by the use of these tools.
Sensory tools help to calm children who are over stimulated by bright lights, sounds or clutter.
Specific anxieties can be calmed by a gentle pressure such as a weighted lap pad, or by a soft brushing of the skin. Help me obtain these types of sensory aides for calming the worries of the students I work with.
