My Students

As a Speech/Language Pathologist, I see a variety of students. Students that present with Autism. Students that present with Language Delays/Disorders. Students that present with Articulation/Phonological Delays/Disorders. But that does not tell me who they are as a person. The one thing that my students do have in common though?

They are UNIQUE.

Each and every single one of them.

I love working with the students on my caseload, but I also love working with students that are not on my caseload. Being able to pop into classrooms, with teachers that are very welcoming and students that enjoy showcasing their skills and abilities, is a GREAT feeling!

With that being said, yes, the students on my caseload are in my therapy room week to week, but I also have students that are not on my caseload that visit my therapy room. I love having an open and welcome atmosphere for all students of my school building to come in and have a conversation!

My Project

For the past few years, I have watched as classrooms in my buildings embrace the flexible seating change. I have loved visiting classrooms and learning more about what they have to offer, so I decided to try it for my students that present with higher sensory needs, especially while they learn. In my therapy room, I have already noticed a difference between stationary chairs and stationary stools! My kiddos have so much more focus and fun! It's different, it's unique to the speech room, it's inviting!

I would love for my students to be able to wiggle and giggle while they learn!

These stools would not only benefit my students as they learn to increase their language and articulation skills, but also contribute with their overall core development, self-control/body control, and focus. These stools would also provide an outlet for those students that I serve who benefit from sensory input.
