Fun Friday Sensory Play
In grooming class, we decided to do a sensory activity using shaving cream that would help aid in learning grooming skills as well. Some students love it and some students are not sure of it.
After play is where the grooming lesson comes in. The students have to wash all the white (shaving cream) off there hands. This includes washing backs of hands, in between fingers, around the nail beds, and under finger nails. Our students have a habit of only washing the palms of their hands at times, so this activity showed them where dirt could be hiding!
Stewart Home & School is one-of-a-kind community. Most special education programs end at age 21, and then adult settings focus on vocational options and daily living skills. Stewart Home & School assigns each person with special needs a special education plan in addition to goals for vocational placement, social maturity growth and daily living skills training. Working together with the student, his/her family and the school faculty, each plan is implemented on a year-round, three-semester basis and schedules are adjusted as needed.
