Flexible seating - sensory seeking
School: Croswell Elementary
I have been honored to teach the early childhood special education program here in Romeo for the last 23 years. I am so excited to present this proposal for your review. My classroom is filled with curious children, all who have unique needs. The ultimate goal of any great teacher, is to reach ALL types of learners. A typical preschool student can learn best in a small chair, other types of learners require sensory input. Our brain is constantly taking in information from our senses. For most people, processing that information isnât a problem. But dealing with that stream of input is a struggle for kids with sensory processing issues. Some kids tend to be âsensory seekers.â They under react to sensory input or need more of it to function. Flexible seating allows them to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow and core strength. Please help me to create a learning environment to accommodate all children.
