Sensory tools will be provided around the building to facilitate student’s ability to regulate their sensory systems by taking sensory/movement breaks. The spots will be called Sensory Stops and be available to the entire student body.
A well-regulated sensory system allows a student to attend and respond to tasks as well as engage in positive social interactions. By providing a variety of sensory tools, students will take an active part in understanding their own sensory needs with the goal of maintaining alertness for focus and participation in the school day. The items would be used in grades K-5 during PE classes and OT sessions as well as be accessible to all students for movement breaks.
