It Helps Her Feel Calm
Jenna Higgins, Recreation Therapy Intern
Belle* loves the sensory room every time she is able to go in there. For class last week, I had her go into the sensory room for 15 minutes at the beginning to help her relax and take time to focus on herself. When I went back to get her, she came out with a huge smile on her face and said, 'that felt really good.' We then proceeded to talk about how much she enjoys the room and why it helps her feel calm. She told me her favorite object in there were the sparkly glitter wands. When she puts them upside down the glitter moves up and down the wand, and 'it is cool to watch because it is free to move however it wants.' She always looks forward to her time in the sensory room and wants to go every class period because she enjoys it so much and it makes her feel better.
