Sensory Wall

Our plan is to create a DIY sensory learning wall within our SPED and SLP classroom. This learning wall will provide students with a variety of sensory integration experiences. This sensory wall will expose our students to a variety of textures and surfaces to improve fine motor skills, coordination, attention span, reaction to touch, balance, and tracking. In addition to the wall we plan to provide a relaxing, calming environment for when our students have sensory overloads that result in meltdowns. We plan to use: crash pad, pod swing, and light filters to engage students in safe, stimuli seeking behaviors when they can not handle the regular class environment. This will provide them with a place to deescalate in order to return to the classroom and focus on learning tasks.
