Jeaneen commented on Innovate or Isolate

I believe part of the empathy "training" includes early exposure for kids to the differences in the sounds/textures, etc that may be off-putting to some children....Children can be so intuitive, often if we just allow them to work together to problem solve empathy often rises to the surface.
When the use of a Sensory Lab is introduced to ALL students it becomes a part of the norm....not just used for students that have specific sensory issues. The activities can be useful for all students to improve core strength & balance and empathy is increased for those who may struggle more with these skills as they all "practice" . We see it in action at RTE, and it is remarkable!!
