In my search for activities for a student who has been diagnosed with significant disabilities, as well as CVI (Cortical Visual Impairment), I decided to create a sensory learning space.
What I like about this type of sensory activity space is that it gives my student the opportunity to explore and learn independently. Every movement gives him sensory feedback. The items in the space are different textures, make noises when hit, or light up. We also put soft music on for him to listen to.
Because funds are limited I decided to make my own sensory learning space with the following materials:
fairy lights (my student’s preference is red)
items from our room to hang or attach on the inside
It cost less than $30 to make.
