Our team’s goal is to create amazing and well designed sensory kits for the students with developmental disabilities of Esperanza Community School.
Our team conducted research to determine the most cost effective way to provide resources and involve the community and decided on sensory kits. We attempted a cheaper version a few months prior with ideas from staff at Esperanza. After feedback from the teachers and staff that work directly with the students, it was obvious that to provide higher quality and safer resources to these students, additional funds would be needed to purchase sensory related items. The items that we used were chosen from a revised list of items that teachers and staff at Esperanza compiled based on previous experiences and knowledge of students. Our final kit is intended to be accessible and beneficial to all age groups and developmental levels within Esperanza.
