“This project will expand upon the foundation Glendale Elementary school has built around social emotional learning. Our plan is to strengthen teachers’ capacities to support students’ sensory and emotional regulation. This grant will allow our multi-disciplinary team to strengthen universal practices around sensory regulation using Zones of Regulation curriculum and mindfulness lessons in conjunction with continued development and implementation of our Tiger’s Den, a sensory regulation room. The Tiger's Den is a short-term intervention with the goal of students becoming more aware of their sensory needs and solutions and to carry that awareness back into the classroom and other school environments.”
