We are a team of Educational Assistants at our amazing school- Truedell Public School. Many of our students deal with issues that make it hard for them to pay attention or feel relaxed in stimulating environments. They deal with a dysregulated sensory system which could manifest as fear, physical pain, defiance, irritability and/or discomfort from the unusual noise, movement, textures, and lighting of our classrooms. We are looking for funding to purchase calming sensory toys and comfort items that can help bring our students out of their fight-or-flight state.
