Movement / Sensory pathways provide a multi-sensory learning experience for all students including those with varying disabilities. Building these foundational building blocks of brain development will help to increase the potential in all of our students, especially those who have developmental delays. The pathways will also help students in being mindful of their bodies. 

The link below is an article and video clip that shows a child using a sensory pathway that was created by the same company that we would purchase from to install at Peebles.

The link below provides an article and video clip that demonstrate children being active, and how that not only helps with their physical wellness, but aids in cognition as well. Most students' physical activity each day is only comprised of physical education class and recess.  This does not fulfill the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity per day. The movement/sensory pathway would help students to reach that 60 minute goal in a structured, yet fun way.

Students with special needs including ADHD, Autism, and learning disabilities will have daily access to a movement/sensory pathway. Research shows that when a child starts losing cognitive functioning during the learning process, it helps to give the child some sensory input. This pathway was designed in a specific series of movements found to offer the child the necessary proprioceptive and vestibular input to help him/her refocus and attend. This ultimately will increase cognition and retention of new information. Results should include a reduction of sensory seeking behaviors and an increase in cognitive functioning. This pathway will offer a constructive break for students both physically and mentally.

Update - Jun 6th, 2019 at 6:48PM

As an update to the previously written proposal, I have provided two links that help to better explain the benefits of a movement/sensory pathway in our schools. As you can see from the articles and clips attached, the pathways provide a multi-sensory learning experience for all students including those with varying disabilities. Building these foundational building blocks of brain development will help to increase the potential in all of our students, especially those who have developmental delays. The pathways will also help students in being mindful of their bodies.
