HAPPY MLK DAY EVERYONE!!!
I am enjoying this beautiful 70 degree day off in Austin today! Hope everyone else is off as well!
Today my post is about a sensory board I had put in my room in October and then I added things that would stimulate specific needs for my students as well as things they don't like. I use it for 3 of my students that are non-verbal and need a lot of sensory play to get them interested in things and to talk or make noises. This is also a way that they can make choices on things they want or don't want. I have one student that is working on reaching for things in front of him rather then to the side this has really helped him a lot. One of my other boys that uses it has CP and in a wheelchair. He is working on sitting criss cross in front of the board while keeping his head up instead of it just falling- controlling his head and neck. While sitting there he has to reach forward and crab things on the board. Here it is:
As you can see there is a verity of items on the board from music instruments, lights, or things that are textured in some way. I can easily change the things out when needed. Does anybody else have anything like this? Or use anything like this?
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to comment! Please follow me!!
Hope you have a great Monday!!
