Congratulations to Ashville Elementary School kindergarten teacher Kim Strayer for receiving a $360.87 grant for a sensory path at Ashville. According to Strayer, sensory paths are bright, colorful stickers that were first developed by occupational therapists and physical educators. They are a quiet, safe way to provide students the sensory input or ‘brain break’ they may need to refocus and self regulate.
“Thank you, TVEF, for the grant money for our sensory path. This area will provide our students with a short break during the day when they need a moment to themselves,” she said. “It’s important for all of our students at Ashville to feel loved and know that it’s ok to have to take a quick brain break. We are so excited for this new resource for our students.”
