Goal

With the use of technology specifically designed to stimulate or calm the senses, students will be able to access sensory items and activities within the classroom to help relieve stress and anxiety and then return to their studies and continue to engage in their learning. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students in the classroom will be able to take 'sensory breaks' from their learning without leaving the classroom. They can use a designated sensory break area within the classroom to seek out a variety of items from fidgets to tactile items.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students will be able to advocate for themselves what kinds of of sensory items they need to help them overcome agitation. We keep the overhead classroom lights off and use only low level lamp lighting with the room. These new sensory items would help add to the overall calming effect in the room.Within the break area students can use their preferred item for a break to help relieve stress and calm themselves.  

 

Describe the Students

The students are all on the Autism Spectrum and have a range of sensory needs. Some of the students gravitate towards more of a tactile type of sensory item while others enjoy more visual sensory stimulation.
