Help us to create a sensory room for the kids in the CRHS Access Academy.
The sensory room for the students in the Autism Program at Coral Reef High School will be a space designed to help individuals with sensory issues learn to regulate their brain’s negative reactions to external stimuli by developing coping skills for these experiences. The human brain is designed to produce and regulate responses to the body’s sensory experience such as touch, see, smell, taste and hear. For an individual with a developmental disorder, including autism, the way the brain processes these experiences can be a major source of distress and discomfort. With the use of the sensory room the students will learn to rebalance and self-regulate, allowing them to thrive in their environment.
