“Making sense about Being Sensory”

Sensory processing difficulties are unrelated to the sense organs themselves but are related to the way the brain registers, modulates and integrates sensory information. Many of our students with Autism are very tactile and need sensory input. Research has shown that sensory input may calm, re-focus, stimulate and facilitate attention and awareness, and reduce overall stress.
We have set up ‘Sensory boxes’ for classes, but more stimuli is needed for our students. The boxes need an upgrade.

The total project cost is… $1 000.00

The major costs associated with the project are…
to purchase items such as:Kinetic sand, water wheels, snow globes, tactile surfaces that are rough, smooth, slippery, silky and slimy, fidget toys and “chewables” as many of the ASD students love to ‘mouth’ things. Other products could include ‘pressure blankets’, pressure vests/rolling pins, shoulder wraps, the autism body sock and therapy balls.

The $1,000 grant will be used to… purpose Sensory products

The funding will cover the project, however we continually seek to update and improve on our resources when needed and it will be funded by our school when required.

My daughter attends Croxton. She has significant needs and responds well to sensory engagement. The folks at Croxton have done a wonderful job with her and I fully support any initiative they undertake on behalf of their students. Thank you, Jonathan

Tools to aid sensory development and integration processes in children are so beneficial.
