Once a week Joy travels to a regular elementary school in the district to work with Ms. Alice’s students. Alice is such a creative teacher and she and her staff work hard to provide a variety of sensory experiences for her students. One of the coolest things she has done is to turn her office space into a mini sensory room!
She had a swing mount attached to one of the ceiling beams and ordered a platform swing and net swing. Her students get so excited when its time to go “swing”! On their tummies and moving the swing around with their arms they are working on neck extension, shoulder stability, palmer sensitivity, and visual tracking while picking up objects such as letter cards that are increasing their academic skills.
